What you'll do

SHIOYA is my small hometown, a quaint peaceful fishing village nestled in a valley. It takes about 15 minutes from Kobe, 40min from Osaka and 70min from Kyoto by JR train. It's surrounded by beautiful mountains and the sea, its historical and has a lovely quaint market street. On meeting at JR SHIOYA station, I'd like to give your own Japanese name card to you. It would be useful for communication with friendly local people. First, let's go to the harbour. Enjoy a photogenic view of the area. You can see Mt Rokko, Awaji island, the pearl bridge, etc. Also, my fisherman friend waits for you. You can sample Nori (seaweed) if you like. Then through the tunnel, we'll go into SHIOYA town. I'd like you to know about real Japanese daily life by walking through a temple, a shrine, a cemetery, etc. Also, enjoy the narrow market street and I want to share my local vision with you, visiting a barber shop which has over 100 years history, a tatami factory, and our beautiful heritage, the Guggenheim house when they are open. Let's enjoy more than 8 different yummy Japanese snacks & drinks. Have fun talking with local people & a super smiley environment !

Sumile

Hi there, I'm Sumile. I love travelling and used to work in a tourist company as a tour leader. I have been all over Japan and the world, about 45 countries in total. I prefer visiting local backstreets and markets to the UNESCO world heritage sites and main famous streets because I noticed that's the best way to understand real people's lives. On each trip, meeting and talking face to face and knowing about their lives and cultures deeply and directly was a wonderful experience for me. On the SHIOYA tour, I'd like to introduce you to Japanese real lifestyle and make it fun and enjoyable!
