What you'll do

After renting an e-bike at Haibara station on the Kintetsu Line we enjoy a leisurely one-hour-ride along rivers and paddy fields where the nobles once might have taken a stroll. Time for Lunch! Strolling through the Picturesque Old Town The old merchant buildings lining the streets in the Matsuyama district have very impressive latticed windows. Find out what kind of shops they were and why the buildings and lattices differ slightly! Try your Hand at Calligraphy Writing with a brush and Indian ink is how the Japanese people have been expressing themselves for ages. Even now the children are being taught calligraphy at school or in private lessons, also as a way to learn manners. In this tour we will visit an actual calligraphy school, and experienced Midori sensei will give you an enjoyable lesson in writing Japanese characters. Take home a special souvenir afterwards! Got a Sweet Tooth? Museum of Medicine Back to the Present We hope that through this tour you will be able to enjoy the Japanese countryside and perceive how people lived now and then while also getting a deeper understanding of Japan and its culture. We will strive to make this day a memorable one for you.

Experience traditional Japan with all your five senses in Uda!
