Mizuno Blacksmith is a very local business that does not open to everyone and doesn't always work with a set schedule. Depending on the day, we can go inside the shop but might not be able to visit the forge if the master isn't available. We apologize in advance if it happens, but let's be optimistic.
The meeting and departure point is located just by the station on the Westside, in front of the Nankai Sakai Station Post Office. Once you got off the train, take the West exit and the post office will be visible, next to the bike shop "Cycle Hero". Your guide and everyone else will be waiting in front of the Post Office 15 minutes before departure time.
