The skills of a time forgotten

Watch as skilled craftsmen demonstrate techniques of yesteryear, from the production of paper umbrellas to weaving and blacksmithing.

Do not miss the amazing Korankei Valley. Remarkable year round, it is all the more lovely during November's Maple Festival. In the middle of the gorge you can find Kojakuji Temple, ideal for quiet contemplation with its Zen meditation hall.
