    What to Expect
    Your walking tour begins at Kitakata Station, when you’ll greet your guide and receive a historical overview of Kitakata. First, you’ll revitalize with a traditional lunch of ramen noodles before heading to a kura yashiki, a renovated storehouse home to wealthy Japanese merchants.

    Visit a kura-style temple, reconstructed following the Great Fire of Kitakata, and then stasify your sweet tooth with yokan (jellied dessert made of adzuki bean paste) and manju (steamed bun) at a Japanese candy store.

    Then, head to sake brewery to sample different varieties of Japan’s national drinks, and learn the secrets behind making Japan’s favorite condiment at a soy sauce factory.

    Your tour culminates with a visit to a shikki (crafts) store to observe local craftsmen painting lacquer ware according to ancient traditions. Here, you’ll have the chance to make your own chop sticks, fan, or hand mirror before returning to your original departure point, Kitakata station.
