    Stamp birthday flowers and birthday salt is colorful and it was very beautiful. It is fun and interesting, they lined up to take a look for yourself or family friend's birthday. I think I like girls. Other sweets, such as souvenir shops and ice-cream is about. Soft serve ice cream took the plum of salt. Blend into a sweet salty taste of salt and sour plum ice cream and was delicious. We know Japan is a little helpful staff too.

    An interesting place in the countryside, where you learn about different types of salt and the way the people processed their salt. Salts of different colors representing one's birthdate and astrology can be bought. Welcoming and friendly staff.
