【Drink tea together】
Next to the UJITEI, It has another house which Toshi and Taeka live.
It is just 20steps.
Why it has two houses on the same ground in the countryside?
We make rice and vegetables or cut grasses outside.
And we drink tea when we brake.
If you are not busy, we invite you to drink tea together outside.
When we drink tea outside, neighbors come to drink together.
They also work outside and want to brake.
You can ask our life, our rice culture. Or a problem in the countryside or how to buy the house, Shiba(!?)
We love to talk and know other culture.
Then we work again outside. If you are interested in farm work, you can join!

Fantastiskt stort hus och vacker naturJeroen2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
Om du vill ha en riktig japansk landsbygdsupplevelse så är det det. Det känns som om du är i en bondgård men det finns ett par närliggande restauranger att komma ut. Ägarna är vackra och ge och är förmodligen vad som definierar upplevelsen.Keoki2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
Fantastisk vistelse, vackert hus. Värd var hjälpsam när det gällde tips om aktiviteter och platser att besöka. Rekommenderas starkt, men se till att ha en bil så att du kan uppleva området på sitt fulla sätt.Vlad2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
Vilken underbar airfy! Trevliga och välkomnande människor, vacker plats, otroliga omgivningar. Jag rekommenderar starkt denna plats för en äkta upplevelse.Elma2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
Det var ett underbart utrymme fullt av mästare och hustrukonst. Jag var trött från att flytta, men just nu blev jag trött, jag var trött. Nästa gång vill jag stanna långsamt! Tack för din underbara anslutning!岩本2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
Denna plats är helt enkelt underbar att koppla av och njuta av landskapet i Japan. Värdarna är mycket charmiga och hjälpsamma. Rekommendationerna de gav oss var fantastiska. Vi skulle verkligen vilja komma tillbaka!Kathleen2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
En fantastisk upplevelse! Just då jag kom tillbaka började jag planera att starta igen för andra gången. Jag gillar verkligen min mormor och varm gästfrihet. Jag kommer att följa med dig till staden en dag. Nästa gång måste jag dricka min mormors te. Vi stannade i en sekel gammal enfamiljevilla, farmor föddes här, mycket vanliga 9 rum. Mormors design är mycket modern, många träsniderier, risfält och blå himmel och vita moln utanför fönstret, och alla slags insekter kombineras till en serenade på natten, vilket är ganska underbart. Mormor sa att vi är den andra vågen av kineser som hon fick. Han gillar Kina, teceremoni och blomsterväg. Staden är väldigt tyst, och jag hade turen att gå till min farfars väns hus, särskilt för att besöka vedugnen. Ser fram emot nästa gång!玲俊2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
Jag lånade en cykel och åkte till staden Kamo. Jag gick med mina barn och gillade att ha massor av grodor och att ha möjlighet att komma i kontakt med naturen. Vi hälsades varmt och väldigt snälla och reste med barn, men vi hade en fantastisk tid.進藤2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
