●About this accommodation
We started the homestay business with the hope of getting more people to know about agriculture and farming communities, and are looking forward to "once in a lifetime" encounters.
In the beginning, we started Rice-and-Duck Farming (known in Japan as "Aigamo" is a modern multispecies integrated farming system) by raising ducks in rice yield to help control weeds and pests. And then started to keep other animals such as Ukkokei chicken (a famous chicken breed of Miyazaki), goats, rabbits and etc.
Please enjoy the experience of interacting with various animals as well as encounters with local people.
