Visit a Japanese paper factory to see how Washi are made and make your own paper. And take the paper you just made to make a notebook by Japanese binding technique. Then visit ORIGAMI vending machine to get a small but unique souvenir. In the end, visit a kite museum to learn about kites and history of this area. When the weather is good, you can fly a kite on the riverside.
All those spots are in the same area called IKAZAKI, one of Uchiko suburb. You get to choose either having a short taxi ride and walk around the area or riding a bicycle the whole time*. The guide will take you through the residential area and stop at spots only locals would know.
Enjoy “Real Japan” at a lovely river side town.
*If it rains, it will be taxi ride and walk even you chose bicycle ride.
