What we will do

• The first stop on our excursion takes us to Maizuru Kamaboko Kobo where we can learn how to prepare Kamaboko, the typical Japanese dish made with puréed and often coloured surimi and fish. The mixture is shaped into loaves which are then steamed until firm. Slices can be served chilled or at room temperature with various types of dips or can be included in soups and other dishes.
• lthough Kamaboko is a very popular and tasty dish, not many people have had the chance to prepare it with their own hands.
• This is therefore a unique unmissable experience.
• After preparing our Kamaboko, we reach Gorougatake, the 300 m peak in the centre of Maizuru.
• On top of the peak there is a 50 m tall observatory, the Goro Sky Tower, offering amazing views over the port and city of Maizuru.
• The panorama is so spectacular that it is known as one of the “100 Scenic Sites in the Kinki Region”.
• Before heading back to the ship, we stop at the Toretore Centre, a famous fish market where we can buy some local fish products and have lunch in a restaurant.
