Follow England: Hara Hachi Bu

Hara Hachi Bu Tour Japan follow England

Hara Hachi Bu?  Quite a mouthful, relating ironically to the meaning of this term that suggests you should ‘leave your belly 80% full’.  Why?  To leave room to sample other delicacies and this schedule certainly allows that around Honshu island.

This tour runs in conjunction with the opening section of Sashihiki, save for visiting Hakone a night earlier and departing after England’s third Group C fixture.
