Associated Press freelance producer BANDOS KINKI visited Tanabe starting from April 18th to cover Shugendo, Minachi-gasa Cypress Hats and Bonito fishing. The Tanabe City Kumano Tourism Bureau helped with the organization and support of this endeavor.
Each story will be around 5~6 minutes long.
After the filming at Tanabe Port we visited Tanabe’s Izakaya district, “Ajikouji”, to do some taste testing. After eating Mochigatsuo Bonito sashimi, Tobias Bando commented, “I’ve been many places in Japan for work and ate local delicious food. I would have to say Tanabe’s Izakaya level extremely high.”
We hope that more people visit Tanabe to enjoy Japanese traditional Izakaya pub culture.
