A Romantic Walk Around a Small Castle Town by the Sea and Port Town

How about a cruise on a fishing boat? Hiji is a castle town where the Kinoshita Family ruled for 270 years until the end of the Edo period, leaving its atmosphere till today. Many cultural propeties remain here from different periods, letting you experience its history.
You can enjoy the view of the castle town and the port town from the ocean, traveling the sea route used by the feudal lord when he journeyed to Edo (current Tokyo). For lunch, we serve a meal prepared with local ingredients at a gorgeous 100 year old mansion at Kinsanno.
