For lunch, enjoy picking from the fresh seafood and having it barbequed right before you, but be sure to save some of your appetite for the next tour activity!
At Maizuru kamaboko factory plant, you can have a go at making your own ‘kamaboko’ (steamed fish cake) using fresh local seafood.
After a brief lesson on the history of kamaboko, you can begin creating various seafood mixtures, molding them into different forms, then steaming or frying them until they are ready.
Indulge in your own handmade kamaboko and take some home with you as edible souvenirs!
When you are done, you will return back to Saika-an inn to pick up your luggage and end your tour.
For a longer experience, you can round up your day with a tour of Maizuru city, where Yoshihara is located, before retiring back to the lodgings for a hot bath, dinner, and a good night’s sleep.
