Take a local bus and a short walk with a local guide to Oda district, a small mountain village, located at the east side of Uchiko Town.
First stop of the walk is a small chestnuts farm. You can see how the Japanese chestnuts are grow and maybe pick up some burrs for a picture later on. Then walk through an old shopping street of Oda, you will see traditional houses nearly 100 years old.
And then the main event of this tour, the dyeing experience begins.
You can leave some rounded marks before you dye a handkerchief to make it more original to you.
Then walk to a local’s favorite restaurant and have Tarai Udon, the specialty of Oda district for lunch.
Enjoy communicating with locals and feel the real Japan.
You may get an option to visit Odamiyama valley with extra fee. Please ask.
