We are a group of five people from Hong Kong for the first time visiting Kagoshima. We joined various tours arranged by Tabitto as we want to experience more about Kagoshima other than shopping. The most remarkable are the tram night and tea & distillery experience. Personally, I love taking tram in Hong Kong because we can enjoy the view and the time well spent with friends. At tram night, we also met other participants came from Hong Kong! It is recommended to join the tram night either meeting new friends or enjoy the delicious food with Kagoshima specialties. We also visited Whisky distillery and Shochu distillery. That was pretty impressive too as to know and experience something you can't see it easily in your own city. And the Tea ceremony was such a wonderful experience to admire how much they care and preserve their own culture. To sum up, great experience, great people, great foods ! Had a wonderful time experiences well prepared by Tabitto !!!

I am a family of four with two children of 6 & 9. Tabitto had offered us a variety of fun learning opportunities during our stay in Kagoshima. Exclusive tours in vinegar factory, soy sauce factory and tea leave manufacturing factory are all eye-opening not only to children, but also to me and my husband. Invaluable travel experience with very unforgettable memories!

I have learned and enjoyed so much in the workshop. Besides, Ichiki town was great for slow walking. There is shochu factory tour (free) in Ichiki that is worth visiting too.
