Travels in Iya, Alex Kerr’s “Secret Tour”

We have organized an exclusive tour with a local tour guide, designed by the scholar of Oriental Studies, Mr. Alex Kerr. Participants will learn about the history and traditional culture with the local tour guide in the “tour for experiencing the as-yet-unknown and novel charms of the Iya region.”
At the end of the tour, a special lunch called “Iya Nouvelle,” will be served, prepared exclusively for the visit.
