築115年の古民家なので、畳の上に布団を敷いて寝ていただくことになります。春の田植えは手植えで、秋は稲を天日干ししています。畑もなるべく機械に頼らず、手作業で行うようにしています。知的障害のある息子は良い働き手になってくれています。夏はホタル、冬は満天の星空を眺めることができます。鹿、狸、狐、兎等、たくさんの野生動物が家の周りにいます。本当のド田舎を経験したい方にとっては、最適な場所だと思います。

Experience the charm of a 115-year-old traditional house nestled in the countryside. Sleep on cozy futons atop tatami mats, just like the locals do. Our rice fields are cultivated by hand in spring and dried under the warm autumn sun. We prefer the human touch over machines whenever possible. My son, who is mentally handicapped, helps us a lot.. In the summer, witness the enchanting fireflies, while in winter, gaze at the starry sky above. Our surroundings teem with wildlife like deer, raccoon dogs, foxes, and rabbits. If you crave an authentic rural getaway, this is the perfect place for you. Come and embrace the real countryside.
