Practitioner Isamu Abe
Hands-on Experiences Nature Experiences/Traditional Cultural Experiences
Accommodation Available
Meals Not provided (Meals are prepared by yourself)

The group Usagi Genki na Kai, which takes its name from the Udo pass pacing the Sea of Japan and the Sagiura District, communicates the charm of the sea and this historic port town. You can walk around the old townscape with its narrow alleys and street number doorplate on every house, or stay at an old private house with a view of the sea. (We are currently not accepting bookings for overnight stays)
Our cruising experiences are particularly popular – in a small boat ride out of the harbor onto the Sea of Japan, and enjoy sightseeing along the coast, feeding the seagulls, exploring natural caves and much more. You can watch the evening sunset over the sea, and, in season, appreciate sea sparkle ("sea fireflies") and fishing lure lights at night. Or try the salt grilling experience to sense the richness of the sea and the blessings of nature by boiling down seawater to make natural salt.
