This trip through the heart of the Japanese Alps is a real off-the-beaten-track adventure for lovers of nature. We are based in maze, one of the most beautiful village in Gifu-ken. Our idea is to make you discover another facet of Japan. Far from the doldrums of the big cities and their mass tourism, we offer the possibility of living an experience that is at the same time cultural, natural and convivial in a dreamlike setting. And if you come to Japan in the summer, this activity will be both fun and keep you cool!
Enjoy the special opportunity to go behind the scenes at a 17th-century Japanese sake brewery—and finish your excursion with a tutored tasting—on this small-group tour. In the afternoon, meet your guide at the Hagiwara train station, and set off on foot. After a brief tour of the town’s historic architecture and highlights, head to the brewery to learn all about sake production. Then, taste five different sake varieties.
