Soeda-machi — 1 day

On the 16th (Thu), see the interesting displays at Koishiwarayaki Traditional Industry Plaza and then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mt. Hiko.

Plan my trip to Soeda-machi with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

London, UK to Soeda-machi is an approximately 21-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 9 hours traveling from London to Soeda-machi due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from London in June, with highs in Soeda-machi at 28°C and lows at 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Yanagawa.
