*Contents of the lunch menu might change depending on the availability. Also a substitute set meal (not a buffet style) can be prepared for vegetarians. If you don't eat raw fish, a separate hotpot with dashi (soup stock) can be prepared to be shared with others for simmering the seafood. If such arrangement is needed, please inform us in the Special Preferences field at the time of booking, or by contacting us at least 5 days before departure.
You will then continue your trip to the famous Ine no Funaya, also known as the "Venice of Japan" and included in the Preservation Districts for Groups of Traditional Buildings system.
