Once in a lifetime opportunity!
This tour was an amazing event that I highly recommend!
The tour started with an enjoyable bike ride to the Kashima shrine that involved a route through the beautiful Japanese neighborhoods, along a gorgeous river, past the crossroads in the rice fields, and across a bridge during sunset. We ended the night of the first day with a group barbecue where we were able to select our ingredients and prepare our own specialty foods.
The next day we were taken to a Japanese festival in the town of Sawara where the locals push impressively decorated shrines through the streets and perform traditional dances for the public audience. You too will have the opportunity to learn and perform traditional festival dances with the locals where you can become involved in the historical festivities just as we did!
If you are planning to attend this once in a lifetime opportunity you should prepare by dressing in active clothing appropriate for the season and if attending the summer festival stay properly hydrated.
You will be filled with fun memories in this tour due to the events listed above and you will also have the time of your life! (Tripadvisor)
