The sun shines on the colorful tin roofs of the earthen storehouses casting shade on the decorated white walls. Black and red carp lazily swim in their ponds and local elderly couples wearing large rice straw hats nurture their vegetable fields under the shadow of the Yatsugatake Mountains. It’s another ordinary day in the Yamaura.
Imagine a century-old farmhouse with sturdy pillars and beams that retains all the beauty of traditional architecture while offering all the modern comforts. Imagine having it all for yourself and your family. Imagine it up in the mountains, in the middle of a rural village brimming with life. This is Yamaura Stay.
How you experience the stay is up to you. Relax by simply enjoying the peaceful atmosphere of a traditional village straight out of an old tale. Maybe mingle with the locals; join the local grannies and make miso, pickle vegetables or cook the typical dishes of tradition; stroll the narrow alleys of the village with a local grandpa; or even help a farmer with his harvest. Discover an ordinary day for the village, but a very special day on your journey.
