Come to Shibetsu-cho to learn how to make “ochazuke”, a home-style rice bowl with warm green tea poured on it. Most Japanese are familiar with this traditional dish, but it is not well known overseas. While here, savor the chance to taste different iterations of ochazuke created by local residents. This cooking adventure is an excellent opportunity to get to know some charming individuals and engage in an up close and personal cultural exchange! After you have eaten your fill, why not enjoy a nature cruise and some wildlife spotting in the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site, Shiretoko National Park? If you are especially lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the impressively large Steller’s sea eagle or majestic white-tailed eagle!
