Travel like a local in Nagano

Would you like to escape the busy day-to-day and take things at a slower pace? Enjoy an enriching experience that will awaken all five of your senses, locally produced goodies for local consumption, nostalgic landscapes and interactions with locals. And sometimes the luxury of just doing nothing at all.

Local production for local consumption

Nagano is a treasure trove of produce! Visit the farmers' market or shop at local shops on foot, and enjoy the selection of ingredients on offer.

Nostalgic landscapes

Why not escape the high-rises and rush hour for a while, and seek out nostalgic landscapes just like those you remember from your childhood picture books? *Photo: Shinetsu-shizenkyo Activity Center (Iiyama City, Nagano Prefecture)

Interactions with locals

Meeting people is the best part of travel. From them, you can find out about the best spots to eat and learn local dialects. We hope you have a wonderful time that will make you want to come back to see us again. *Photo: Vegetable Kanematsu

The luxury of doing nothing

Slow down and listen to the chirping of the birds and the rustling of leaves, feel the temperature and the wind, and now and again the sound of the rain. Doing nothing may be the greatest luxury.

Toshihisa

Nagano experiences wonderful natural changes from season to season, and has a charm that can only really be felt by being here. Following the frozen soils of winter, the mountains begin to sprout as the work in the fields begins. Various flowers bloom, and the scenery seems to change right before your eyes, allowing you to truly feel the power of nature. I want everyone to experience the joy of leaving the city and being surrounded by nature. I hope you will enjoy our day-to-day countryside as your countryside, whether you want to relax, experience mowing, chopping firewood, or harvesting vegetables.

Yoshie

One of my guests who returns each year, told me that the reason they keep coming back is to "give the countryside home to go back to" to their son as both their parents are from the city. After staying on the same property for a few days, guests and Hosts get to know each other well as if they have long been acquainted, picking vegetables together and sharing the side dishes they cook together.
