Yanagawa is also very famous for good Unagi eel. By the time you arrive at the terminal of the boat ride, you can smell Unagi, which makes you starving. I can book a nice famouse Unagi restaurant for lunch. After lunch, you'll visit Yame city where you can enjoy wonderful view of green tea farm. Then you'll visit to learn traditional Japanese artcrafts.

Itinerary

A 80min-drive by high way takes you to Yanagawa city, where you'll enjoy a one-hour river boat riding. After getting off the boat, you can enjoy Unagi at a restaurant (around 2, 500-3, 000yen), or you can walk around the area. Lunch place can be changed upon your request. Then you'll head for Yame city, where you can enjoy the beautiful scenary of greentea farm, and visit Yame craft center located closeby. You can taste very good greentea or maccha-flavored icecream there. You can learn traditional artcrafts of Yame, such as family alter, bamboo crafts, or Japanese paper called Washi. You can also try making your own Washi (reservation needed, around 600yen).
