Kyoto by the sea

Last week, we conducted a 2 days 1 night tour for a family group from Malaysia 
and US in Kyoto Tango which is located at the northern part of Kyoto.  
It is a valuable chance for us to enjoy the spectacular view of Amanohashidate
Ine Fish Village and Miyama village, tasting traditional Japanease cuisine and 
at the same time visiting local seafood markets. 
It is the raining season in Japan now but we are lucky to have a super sunny day 
for the first day.  Our restaurant is next to the famous rotation bridge of Amanohashidate. 
Right before our lunch, two large boats passed through the rotation bridge and we could 
see the bridge rotated twice!  Everyone was so excited!!!  We then enjoyed a fresh sashimi 
and tempura set at the restaurant by the side.  We went up by taking the chairlift in order to
capture the panoramic view of Amanohashidate and the ‘bridge to heaven’.  On the way, 
we could also see pretty blossom of hydrangea as well. After that, we visited Ine fish village
and also the popular sake brewery in Ine.  We enjoyed tasting the special sake and
non-alcohoic ice ceam in summer!!  While filling up our stomach with yummy sushi as dinner,
we stayed in an onsen hotel that night while some guests tried their first hotspring in Japan!! 
The next morning we visited Maizuru Tore Tore Center which is a seafood market and
 the oysters are enormous and fresh!!!  Our last destination is Miyama, the rural village 
of north Kyoto.  After having a nice soba (buckwheat noodles), we had free time walking
 around the village and luckily we tried the gelato which is made by fresh milk from Miyama 
on the way back to Osaka.  Everyone was satisfied with the expereince of countryside in 
Kyoto and also the fresh seafood+ice cream in Japan.  It is sad to say goodbye but hope
 to see them in Japan very soon!!
