Where you'll be

We'll meet up in front of the East gate at Sakai station of Nankai line. Go to a shrine to pray for your staying in Japan and making any kinds of wishes. Walk to the knife museum displaying over 1,000 knives, and learn how the knives are made. Then we'll head to a knife factory to learn how to sharpen knives from a professional and actually sharpen a Japanese knife which you choose. Also fit a handle to the blade by yourself.
