Experience Details
This 2-day tour will broaden your knowledge on seasonal food, its production, and how it's grown in the rural area known as the hidden valley, near Mount Koya. A local English-speaking guide with specialised knowledge of the Koya and Kumano regions will educate you on the area. You'll spend the night at Shukubo temple lodge accommodation at Mount Koya and then travel from Mount Koya to Hashimoto station. At the station you will be collected by another local guide and member of staff from the Ouindo farm. Ouindo is a historical farm which dates back to the 14th century and has passed down from generation to generation. The farm once gave shelter to the 19th Emperor Godaigo and now on the 47th generation of Ouindo the farm has expanded. Now the farm has a restaurant and an area to teach the traditions to the next generation. The building is over 150 years old and preserves age old techniques and creates dishes that use their home-grown, organic vegetables, wild plants and herbs. Depending on the season you visit, guests can learn how the seasonal food is processed. In spring to early summer expect tea production, in summer, tofu, in autumn expect dried persimmon, and winter brings konjac, miso and tofu.
