To the "Kyoto by the Sea". The area is the northern part of Kyoto Prefecture (Fukuchiyama City, Maizuru City, Ayabe City, Miyazu City, Kyotango City, Ine Town, and Yosano Town) facing the Sea of Japan. It is a tourism project promoted by the Kyoto Prefectural Government as "Alternative Kyoto," flourished since ancient times as a window to the continent and still remains many myths. On the first day, headed to Kyotango and visited the terraced rice fields in Sodeshi in the evening after the rain had stopped. The rice fields are terraced on the land between the mountains and the sea. The view of the Sea of Japan from about 400 rice terraces.
The beautiful scenery of terraced rice fields, the sea, and the village in harmony has been selected as one of the "100 best terraced rice fields in Japan.
Checked into the Hotel Jukaitei in Taiza.
Taiza is famous for "Taiza Crab" in winter. Among the Matsuba crabs landed in the Sea of Japan, only those landed in the port of Taiza are given this name. The crabs have long legs and good style as well as their high quality meat, and the fishermen carefully and quickly catch them that live at a depth of 200 to 300 meters.
The owner of Jukaitei is a senior broker of the Taiza Fishermen's Cooperative Association. Would love to visit again in winter.
The heavy rain falling since the morning cleared up and the sun came out.

"Ginshari" from Shirasugi Sake Brewry in Kyotango. The sake is made from Sasanishiki rice, rather than Yamada Nishiki or other sake brewing-friendly rice. The aroma is floral, but the taste is sharp. It has a sweetness and a hint of bitterness, giving it a crisp and cool feeling. Rice that is good to eat is also good to drink.
"Yasakatsuru" from the Takeno Sake Brewery in Kyotango.
For dessert, had pudding, green tea ice cream and chocolate cake. It was a delicious meal.
