The Nanki/Kishu area is a beautiful area, not too widely toured by foreign visitors. With the itinerary and the scenic drive, it is a combination that is quite unforgettable. The itinerary can be adjusted as necessary and stops requested along the way. Please feel free to request any changes at any time.

This bilingual museum tells the remarkable story of two American merchant ships anchoring off the coast of Japan and interacting with locals in 1791. The historical background, incident and contexts are explained in great detail with cool visual aids like artwork and artifacts. The museum is well worth a visit.

!n 1791, two American ships, Thee Lady Washington and the Grace, commanded by the American explorer John Kendrick from Massachusetts stopped for 11 days at Kushimoto, near Osaka, under the pretense that they were taking refuge from a storm. They began negotiations with Japanese authorities there about the potential of opening trade, but made no headway, and they departed after eleven days. The museum was constructed to commemorate this first arrival of Americans to Japan.

No need to see here. There is not any historical bound which is simply and clearly explained about the place. time waste for me.
