​Komoro Trip

Tour the Komoro Castle Ruins Kaikoen by taking a rickshaw ride ~Kimono dress-up experience included~

Go sightseeing in Komoro Castle where is known as the only “castle in a hole” in Japan (the castle town is built just to the north of the castle: most castles tend to be perched on the top of a hill), and enjoy the atmosphere in the castle town as having contact with the locals. It is one of the strongly recommended courses to enjoy the beautiful colored leaves at its best this season around the Komoro Castle Ruins Kaikoen that is famous for its autumn leaves.

Get dressed up in Kimono by Okami-san (the proprietress) of a local favorite well-established Kimono company, and see around the Kaikoen and the castle town by taking a rickshaw as being transformed into a prince/princess.  Commentary provided by the rickshaw man, who acts as a tour guide, is also attractive!

As for lunch, enjoy authentic Soba at a long-established Soba restaurant that is made of all-cypress in Meiji era (1885). You can enjoy orthodox type of Japanese culture and the local gourmet food that you cannot get from your travel guidebooks!
