Hello, we are couple who came from Tokyo to enjoy a village life. Here in the village, you can see so beautiful stars in the sky, and beautiful mountain even Japanese Alpes. Old lady may ask you for tea break to their home if you meet up on the way. Here’s people are so kind and friendly.

The life here is just amazing beautiful. However young generation left and only old people lives nowadays. That is why, there are many empty-old houses and a fields which no-one use anymore. What we do is, try to save and keep them for the future.

We are happy if you enjoy together!
