Stay overnight with a local farming family at their home in northern Miyagi Prefecture. Get to know your host family as you prepare dinner and learn how to make local dishes before eating them together!
Wake up early the next morning and head to Lake Izunuma to see the famous morning flight of white-fronted geese! The lake becomes home to thousands of migratory birds during the Autumn and Winter months, attracting bird watchers and photographers from all over Japan hoping to catch the moment they all take flight together.
After a healthy home-cooked breakfast, head to a local pottery workshop to make your own sake cup! You’ll be needing some sake to drink from it, though, so you might as well hang around and learn how to make ‘doburoku’, Japanese ‘mooshine’ or unrefined sake!
Meet at the Izunuma Local Produce Centre where your homestay family will be waiting to pick you up.
