What you'll do

Meet at Jiyugaoka sta and walk together for about 90 min and take a break for snacks and drink that we prepare. Let's start from Jiyugaoka department and then have a chance to talk to an owner of an antique shop who is Haruko's friend. You'll learn about antique world. There are many shops along an aisle and all are unique, not a normal department you imagine. Probably you don't enter if you are alone coz it's for local people Then going to LA VITA, which Looks like Venice in Italy. Then old fantastic looking cafe, Kosoan just to see coz it was built in 1954. Kumano Shrine is also our visiting place that main shrine is world heritage. You'd better not ask anything. We'll tell you how to pray. Then we'll have a little break for snacks and drink in front of a beautiful flower shop. The tea we prepare is Haruko's special. It's a secret for staying healthy without any medicine even though Haruko is 80 yrs old. Then walk to Marie Claire street and enjoy walking and shops on stone covered street. It's beautiful! Depending on the season, you enjoy cherry blossom. Then we'll go Sweets Forest. You'll be melt. haha.. Enjoy eating or looking at many sweets till the end.
