伝統と革新の地  青森県津軽を訪ねて

Event outline:
The Tsugaru region in Aomori Prefecture is one of Japan's leading apple producing regions, the flavor of its apples highly regarded both domestically and internationally. Hirosaki offers a beautiful view of Mount Iwaki from its stunning, expansive apple orchards. Owani is the ideal bikeable town, a historical spa town surrounded by rich natural environments and green space.
Both have wonderful food cultures and foods that have been nurtured by the unique climate and natural features of the region. Here, you can find a wisdom for everyday life and local flavors that ought be maintained. At the same time, regional production sites for apples and other products are facing a variety of issues, including a shortage of successors and product waste due to abnormal weather.
While bicycle touring in this action, participants will have the opportunity to have exchanges with people inheriting the food culture of the region, those who have roots in the community and who make effective use of the precious resources in their possession while facing these social issues. At our goal, participants will all gather at a communal table and fully enjoy the many bounties of the region. For more details on the 2-day 1-night ride, see the schedule below.
