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!

Cycling through the satoyama landscape, experiencing calligraphy, one of Japan’s traditional arts, and getting a glimpse of how people lived 200 years ago are all part of this tour.
Experience traditional Japan with all your five senses in Uda!
