US $475.00 Nagano Rice harvesting & Onsen Experience Limited Version of Sep. 29
I host this tour to bring my guests from Tokyo to the areas in Nagano and return the back way together on the day after the whole experiences. We'll get on Shinkansen from Tokyo to Sakudaira and change to the local train to get to Yachiho. At the destination, you soon notice the beautiful air with green scenery! Its a highland area. You also see maintains in the distant. It's good to have a light lunch and pop up antique shops, Japanese painting art museum, Sake museum as much as we like in time for joining in the rice harvesting experience at the sake brewery I often make a visit to. It's so wonderful to look at the golden rice fields, ears of rice bowing low for heavy grains in the sunshine. The local people also join in the rice harvesting experience. So, we can enjoy the joy of the harvest with local people as this season has finally come since the planting. We also enjoy eating and drinking sake with local people at the brewery. In 50 minute's location after the experience, we alone visit an onsen with a bath outside to forget stiff shoulders with soaking in it. This tour is for one time only on September 29 in this autumn, very, very limited so to wait until the next year!
