Take a local bus from Kinosaki Onsen to Izushi, where English speaking guides will give you local tour of their own hometown. Izushi is Toyooka's quiet castle town that has retro stores, memorable attractions, and unique specialties. As the bus heads to Izushi, you may see an Oriental White Stork, a bird that was once extinct in Japan but was reintroduced right here in Toyooka. In Izushi, you will have the chance to explore the Izushi Castle Ruins, Shinkoro Clock Tower, Samurai House, Eirakukan Kabuki Theatre (closed on Thursdays), and more! You will also enjoy a lunch of Izushi Sara Soba, a local specialty in which one portion is served on 5 small plates.
