Chichibu Shrine

Winter Weekend Getaway to Chichibu and Kawagoe

About 113 km or roughly 1.5 hours by train from the northwest part of the congested capital, Chichibu region in Saitama prefecture is now becoming a sought-after destination for nature wonders, mountain trekking, river cruising, hot springs onsen, historical sights, and gastronomical delights, including saké and liquor breweries.

Inuyama Ukai Fishing

There are several reasons to visit the town of Inuyama in Aichi prefecture: the castle designated as the National Treasure, the Urakuen with its National Treasure teahouse and the nearby museum or theme parks like Meiji Mura and Little World. But for me the best reason to visit Inuyama, is to witness the Ukai fishing, a traditional fishing method using cormorants that apparently dates back some 1300 years.
