Meet the town nurtured
by the beautiful Nagara River.
A town that comes to life with the water of the river that flows past it. This high-quality water allows for the making of Japanese paper, umbrellas and paper lanterns.The water is also used to hone the blades of katanas, brew saké and fish for sweetfish,and there are still people who carefully pass on these skills to this day.
Retaining a link to something from the past makes it possible to change, and the fact that some things never change makes them feel fresh. We offer adventures to those who want to dive into such a story headfirst.
Welcome to the origin of living. We provide experience tours of cities that have been nurtured by the Nagara River.
