Yabusame

This is just a quick “heads up” post to let you know that sign-ups for our next “Discover Another Kanagawa” day-trip will open this Friday, Jan. 15.  This time we’ll visit the Ashigara region in western Kanagawa. The date of our fully-guided excursion is Feb. 11, which is a Thursday and a national holiday.

To dye for! The Monzo family farm house in Kaisei.

Highlights include VIP access to a demonstration of “yabusame” mounted archery, a workshop in “aizome” indigo dying, visits to a sake brewery and two traditional thatch-roof houses!

Our lunch will be made of entirely local ingredients. Even the box!.

We’ll also learn how to not only drink but also eat our tea, enjoy a bento lunch of local foods and get a sneak preview on the Hinamatsuri Doll’s Festival. There will be some special shopping opportunities, acres of plum trees in bloom, one of Japan’s 100 most scenic waterfalls and if the weather is clear — beautiful Fuji views.

Fuji and plums

Imagine hundreds of plum trees in full bloom—with Mt. Fuji!

We expect this tour to book up quickly — we only have 20 places — which is why I’m giving blog readers this early heads-up. I’ll post full details here on the blog on Friday. Hope you can join us!
