※If coronavirus infections worsen around July, there is a possibility that the event may be postponed. We ask for your understanding.
Tula, located outside of Moscow, is famous for producing samovar (a Russian container used to boil water) and pryanik (a type of Russian gingerbread).
Just outside of Tula lies Yasnaya Polyana, the birthplace of literary master Tolstoy.
I will talk, in Japanese, about the many charms of Tula, Russia, and the surrounding areas.
