Travel Tips for Kuwana
Senbazuru is a traditional art of Kuwana, which entails folding of many cranes from a single sheet of paper. It was developed by a priest in the Edo period. Instead of only folding a single crane, how about learning more intricate origami and folding 10 cranes from a piece of paper. Ask for more info at the Kuwana City Museum.
My Japanese furosato (hometown)
Kuwana has been my home for almost three years now. It is home to about 110,000 people. Kuwana has a little blurb in the LP for its Ishidori Festival but there is much more to my Japanese hometown.
Kuwana has a long and interesting history. It was a major stop on the Old Tokaido Road. It is a great wlaking town, with lots of areas that leave you feeling like you just stepped into old Japan.
