Tsukuba Cultural Foundation: Bus Tour

Author: Author unknown, Issue: November 1997, Topic: Events

Experience traditional Japanese food and drink first-hand while enjoying an international exchange on a one-day bus tour sponsored by the Tsukuba Cultural Foundation. This tour is back for the fifth time this year by popular demand. The Tsukuba Cultural Foundation is planning a bus tour to promote a deeper understanding of traditional Japanese culture. Participants will be introduced to Japanese food and drink, and will also be taken to sites of historical interest. There will be ample opportunity for international exchange. Please join us and enjoy a nice day!


  • Okukuji Chanosato Park (Daigo-machi, Kuji-gun, Ibaraki) You will be able to experience making "Teuchi Soba" (buckwheat noodles made by hand) and green tea, where you can actually take the dried leaves and break them up into tea. You can bring back the soba which make yourself and have it for dinner if you like.
  • Fukuroda Fall (Daigo-machi, Kuji-gun, Ibaraki) You will be able to see one of the most famous waterfalls in Japan, which flows over a three-tiered precipice some 120 meters high.

Date: December 6 (Sat.) 8:20 to 17:40
Meeting Place: The Sakura branch of Tsukuba City Hall at 8:20
Limit of Participants: Foreigners 25, Japanese 20
Participation fee: 2500 yen (including lunch and park entrance fee) due on the day of the tour. Small children can accompany their parents free (though, of course, they won't be able to chop the soba themselves).
