When I come to Kamikatsu town, I always stay at a farmhouse.Among them, I recommend a farmhouse inn “Yama-ai”.It is a few minutes ‘ drive from the town office, but it is real Japan satoyama after climbing a steep slope.

This inn is run by a couple of local poultry farmers.The Grandpa in the country welcomes you warmly as if you came to visit Grandma’s house.

The bath is a wooden semi-open-air bath made by the owner.It is a bath warmed by firewood, which is quite rare recently. Because the temperature adjustment seems to be difficult, the water might be too hot, please enter it carefully.Bathing while looking at the scenery of Satoyama from the window might be very nice experience.

Dinner after the bath.The grandma cooks it in the hearth.Let’s get plenty of local information here.

Wake up with the sunrise in the morning and take a walk in the vicinity.It is sure to be healed by the scenery of the Satoyama.

Enjoy the life of Satoyama in Kamikatsu town.
