Japanese Cultural Exchange, Sightseeing Tour for foreigners

Fuji Taxi is located in Yuumachi, Iwakuni City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, and has been in business for over 50 years.

The “Sightseeing Tour for foreigners” sponsored by the Iwakuni Chamber of Commerce and Industry was held, and Fuji Taxi participated as a provider of sightseeing taxis.

The tour from 10:00 to 16:00 was held for foreign customers with a total of 3 taxis, 2 regular taxis and 1 jumbo taxi.

In order for foreigners to get a deeper understanding of Japanese culture and the town of Iwakuni, the tour content allows you to learn about and interact with various cultures.

Textile dyeing experience

We had a cloth dyeing experience to get to know Japanese dyeing culture, and we enjoyed it a lot.

Everyone in the Chamber of Commerce was wearing beautiful costumes and welcomed us while playing music.

This time we made a tote bag.

There are also people who can speak English in the area, so you can enjoy dyeing while being taught in English. We learned about the process of making dyes by tying them with strings and attaching them to liquids. At the end, everyone was wearing costumes and we took a commemorative photo.

We recommend this experience!

Wasabi Tororo Don in Waka no Sato

Waka no Sato is located in the mountains of Shutomachi, 20 minutes from the Chamber of Commerce by taxi, surrounded by deep forest.

We visited this time because I sympathized with the shop owner’s desire to see and experience “Waka no Sato” surrounded by beautiful nature.

Cooking description

When you enter the store, the atmosphere of “Japan” is transmitted to the whole area and you will feel calm.

The owner can speak English and tell us the history and culture of the store in an easy-to-understand manner.

Everyone was happy to experience the feeling of Japan while enjoying wasabi and tororo. In fact, I ate it for the first time, but the taste of wasabi that I had never eaten covered the concept of wasabi and it was very delicious.

We thought, does it suit the taste of foreigners? But I’m glad that everyone has finished eating and was able to experience another culture.

If you are worried, please leave it to Fuji Taxi, as the road that ordinary cars can finally pass is heading into the mountains.

Local liquor store Isoda

We walked around the city of Iwakuni. There are many famous local sakes in Yamaguchi prefecture, so we stopped by a liquor store.

Dassai, Gangi, Murashige, Gokyo, etc. … We were pleased with the many local sakes that foreigners also know.
