Students from Kakegawa International Christian School had the honor of being the first tour group when the factor reopened. They even got to be on TV! We were divided into two groups, with Japanese and English speaking tour guides, and children of all ages (preschool through high school) had a wonderful and educational time!

Thank you to Visegradi, we were able to make a visit to the factory during our stay in Osaka. Kakegawa is to be reached by train (sinkanzen) around 2 hours away from Osaka. Thus it's valuable for us to have the JR pass otherwise a one way trip would cost a person around Yen 10,000. From Kakegawa train station you... More

We have visited the factory in March 2012. Before you would go there you need to reserve a time. You need to phone there for a time reservation but luckily they do have English speaking staff so it is not that difficult. The factory tour was separated to English and Japanese speaking visitors. The English speakers started first in the... More
