Market City – Oct.,2019

This tour was the order from Higashiomi Internaitional Friendship Association as the party of Market city of Michigan which is the sister city of Higashiomi city came to Higashiomi city.

We took the party to Tatami factory and they enjoyed Tatami making. After that, we showed the typical type a decade ago of Japanese house with tatami rooms, an alcove called tokonoma, and a Buddhist altar. They also enjoyed Kimono Fitting at the house.

There were people in the party who are members of Lions Club and had requested us that they wanted to interact with the members of the local Lions Club, Yokaichi Lions Club. We arranged the time and place of lunch meeting of Japanese bento and udon noodle for their interaction.

このツアーは、東近江国際交流協会からのご依頼で、東近江市と姉妹都市であるアメリカ合衆国ミシガン州マーケット市の方々の来日において、畳づくり体験、弊社所有の一般的な日本家屋の見学、和装体験を楽しんでいただきました。

ライオンズクラブメンバーがいらっしゃり、ライオンズ交流も望まれたため、地元八日市ライオンズクラブとの交流・昼食会(松花堂弁当とうどんをご用意)を調整しました。
