Daishoji Monitor Tours in English

Tabunka Net Kaga (たぶんかネット加賀) and the Kaga City Tourism Association (加賀市観光協会) have teamed up to create an English-language day tour of the Dashoji area in Kaga.

Aimed at foreign tourists and conducted in English, the tour includes a riverboat trip, a tea ceremony, and entrance to the Kutaniyaki Museum. The tour will be held three times on the second Saturdays of April, May, and June.

This sounds like a great opportunity to get to know southern Ishikawa this spring!

The next tour is 10 April 2010. Currently there are 5 spaces left, so act fast!
