9th September FREE MONITOR TOUR! Explore "Kyotoite Quartier-Latin", a cultural chaos which incubated Nobel prize winners


On 9th September we are doing a monitor tour for a NEW course in Sakyo ward, Near Kyoto Univ. It will not be a conventional sightseeing but would have a feel of going deep into the university area as well as the residential area mingled together.

As this is the monitor tour for investigating the interest of participants, the place we visit may change, but we are planning to see a shrine with a pair of peacock, two confectionaries both very popular among the locals, possibly a tofu shop, vegetable shop and finish with the sake store where we might be able to taste some of good sake.

The fee will be FREE on this day if you participate and tell us freely what you think and feel about our tour. (the costs for eating and tasting are on you if you wish to taste but it is not so expensive, less than 1000 yen maximum)
