We are married couple,75old husband and 71old wife. So we have amazingly rich OMOTENASHI spirit that our ages have raised. First you will walk along the gorge, next you will make HOTO, a local flat noodle specialty served MISO SOUP as your lunch. And yo will visit KANAZAKURAJINJYA shrine having a history of 2000 years. At that shrine, you will practice calligraphy, traditional art form in Japan.

What to Expect

You can feel that your body and soul are refreshed by walking in SHOSENKYO gorge along clear ARAKAWA river and communicating us.. And you can know how to make HOTO and a sense of a Japanese art through practicing CALLIGRAPHY. Also you can see Mt. FUJI from the shrine in clear day. And we use a local bus with inhabitants for travel between KOFU station and the entrance of SHOSENKYO. So you might see a part of Japanese daily life.

We use a local bus. The departure time of the bus is 9:10am. So I can't wait for my guest who is late.
The walking time is about 90~100 minutes.
The course is a gradual ascent, paved, narrow path along the river and it has about 150 steps stone stair on the way. So you shoud wear suitable clothes, rain gear, shoes and take a bottle of water.
