Owner Information
Why did you start a homestay?

Through Shirakami Nature School's guiding, nature experience, lodging, and meals, we hope to provide a place where visitors can spend quality time and enjoy themselves.
We thought of providing a place for visitors to spend time and enjoy themselves through guiding, experiencing nature, staying overnight, and eating.
After talking with local farmers, we decided to start it.
