Hand-fishing, nature experience, forest railroad

Hand-fishing refers to catching, with your bare hands, the yamame (landlocked masu salmon) that crisscross the river’s clear waters. You can cook the yamame you have caught over a charcoal fire, and enjoy a delicious piping-hot salt-grilled fish. A sublime delicacy of delicious oily fish, seasoned with salt to perfection. The yamame tastes even better knowing that you worked so hard to catch it yourself. Akasawa Forest Railroad was a railway that was used to transport felled timber from the mountain through the forest. A part of the Akasawa Forest Railroad still exists and has been restored as a tourist attraction. Refresh yourself in the pleasant breezes as you ride leisurely through the forest. Indulge in a forest-bathing experience as you enjoy the chug-chug of the train. Another popular activity is to make your own wooden pendant. Make a wooden pendant with pieces of wood that have distinct grain patterns. Create your own design by drawing a picture or writing something and make your very own pendant, the only one of its kind in the world.
