Curious about life in the Japanese countryside?  Our onsen town, Togura-Kamiyamada, is the perfect place to catch Japan's rural heartbeat.  Let our Zukudashi guides introduce you to the rituals, stories, symbols as well as people that make our town click.


Togura-Kamiyamada features many family-run businesses and specialty shops.  During the course of the tour, we stop in at many of them, meet the owners, and taste the products they make.  We also visit a historical and architecturally-important hotel as well as a fascinating 'samurai room'.


In keeping with the 'Zukudashi' spirit, with enough advance notice the walking tour includes an interactive, hands-on lesson.  Examples are learning the proper way to pour Japanese tea (presented by a licensed instructor), a lesson on how to make miso soup, or making a stained glass memento.
