Tomihiro Art Museum and Seifun Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Kanayama Castle Remains and Obiki Inari Shrine will appeal to history buffs.

For where to stay, maps, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Ota travel planning tool.

Manila, Philippines to Ota is an approximately 11.5-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Manila to Ota. Traveling from Manila in April, things will get cooler in Ota: highs are around 19°C and lows about 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Tue) to allow time to travel to Minakami-machi.
