1-Day Tour of Tango and Kinosaki Area
Limited Time Tour: October 29th (Sun) & November 13th (Mon)
Through the lenses of Art and Food take a journey through Japan's past, to get a glimpse of its future
You'll then take the bus to Kyotango for lunch at the Roadside Station. There you will be served an exquisite meal with recipes designed by highly acclaimed restaurants: cenci, based in Kyoto, and Nawaya, based in Kyotango. The dishes will be made using local ingredients and are only available for a short time.
Also at Tenki Tenki Tango will be a Tango textile installation created by textile designer Yoko Ando and the Next Generation Architecture Team.
After lunch you'll visit a number of historic and cultural locations containing special art projects. The sites include: Takano Shrine, which was founded when Japan's 9th emperor, Emperor Kaika's, consort returned to her home in her later years; the Tango Ancient Village Museum where AAWAA (COSMIC WONDER), a work inspired by local history, is on display; and Shinmeiyama Burial Mounds, which is on a man-made hill next to Takano Shrine and is a symbol of the power that the ancient residents had over the Tango area.
After these three sites you'll visit Taiza Studio, the center of TOMORROW FIELD where, inspired by ancient buildings like Ise Shrine, the artists experiment with different construction styles to make connections between the past and the future. It's here that you'll be able to see their installation themed "Future Living".
After that the bus will take you to scenic Amanohashidate where the tour will end. There you are free to see the attractions, stay overnight or take the train to your next destination.
