One of the most unique and delicious meals I've ever had in Japan, at an incredible home stay experience at a farmhouse in rural Shikoku. It was river fish and vegetables grown by the homestay couple, cooked in thick miso on a stone brought down from the mountains. The 'wall' is made from Tokushima tofu, which is firmer than regular tofu. Owing to me not being a 🐟 eater and one of the other ladies being Muslim, we had our own separate walled sections for our own food (chicken for me!) Such a special experience ❤️🇯🇵 #japan#japanesefood#shikoku#food#homestay#iyavalley#ifreakinglovejapan
Deep in the Iya Valley in rural Shikoku is the incredible Kazurabashi vine bridge, built entirely out of vines and natural materials. It's rebuilt every 3 years to ensure that it's kept in the best condition possible. And if you're not afraid of heights, don't forget to look down through the slats at the super clear river flowing below!
Have you ever been?
The incredible vine bridge, Kazurabashi, in the Iya Valley in the heart of Shikoku. It's entirely made of natural materials and is rebuilt every 3 years - it was a bit alarming to know right now it's on its third year though... It sways as you walk over it and the gaps between the slats was quite large, but it was still a super cool experience!
