I. Sado Island Local Food & Folk Performing Arts Tour


In the mountain ravine there is a quiet farming town of Hamochi Osaki where you will find residents who live rich lives with a deep appreciation for nature. On this tour you will enjoy simple country cuisine and have your fill of fragrant soba as you are introduced to a host of the folk performing art forms of Hamochi Osaki. This includes the very rare opportunity to see Bunya puppetry, designated a significant intangible folk cultural asset by the Japanese government.
