Experimental tour to interact with local people in their homes, for international tourists

We, the University of Hyogo, are offering a special experimental tour for international tourists to interact with local common people in their own homes and try a cultural and traditional activity of their expertise. In the rural area around Kinosaki, many traditional houses and lives still remain. These spots will give you the chance to experience authentic Japanese common people’s lives which you cannot experience in urban areas. Since it is usually difficult for international tourists to enter locals’ houses and interact with them, this is a very special opportunity.
In this tour, you will be able to enjoy a program involving interaction with local people by our arrangement.
Come see another side of Japan, make great memories, and learn about Japanese people’s lives through this tour!
