A young Taiwanese lady’s trip to Shinjo・Mogami in the spring of 2018.

This Taiwanese lady loves Japan and visited Shinjo・Mogami on a tour to experience rural Japan.
Tohoku is her favorite part of Japan.
She planned her own three-day journey by herself. It was a trip of simple pleasures with the goal of creating the chance to meet residents and learn more about a smaller town environment. “ Ichi go ichi e”, a once-in-a-lifetime occasion, is her favorite expression.

Mogami Bussankan

The visitor from Taiwan had arranged to stay at a new Shinjo guesthouse so before going there she went to the Mogami Bussankan to find local foods she was looking forward to eating. She had made sure to check out local foods in advance so, without hesitation, she bought natto. She could not stop shopping for typical products since she wanted to sample a range of Shinjo foods.
