1:00 PM to 4:45
Namba Kintetsu Station, East exit (map)
Save Your Spot:
Are you fascinated by Koi as much as us? I love them and they symbolize Japan well: gracious, elegant and peaceful. We will visit a koi & gold fish farm. Note that the koi are juvenile and not fully grown as they are sold off to collectors to be raised to larger sizes. For this hike we will:
❂See JAPAN'S ONLY goldfish vending machine (in the middle of nowhere)
❂Visit a KOI and Goldfish farm
❂Walk into the countryside and be walking along the fields
❂Go to a Goldfish museum
❂trek through a traditional, ancient village
❂Enter a mystical tiny forest temple (an oasis).
