Yabuta Green Farm (Farming Exp. Pick up avail.)

120 yr. old Japanese tradtional house

DESCRIPTION

About Yabuta Green Farm

The town of Tatsuno in Inadani, Shinshu is famous since the Meiji era as the "home of fireflies" where the "Genji Firefly" can be seen the most in eastern Japan. It is also known as the geographical center of Japan.

Yabuta Green Farm is the first place to tell the arrival of spring. The farm is located in the Sawasoko area, the home of Fukujuso, a plant that is the first to announce the arrival of spring.

Spring comes with the break of the bright yellow buds of the fukujuso and is followed by the blooming of plum blossoms and cherry blossoms.
You can take a walk in the fields of the satoyama while looking at the oldest roadside deity in Japan. In summer, you can enjoy the fresh breeze.

In summer, you will be soothed by the elegant atmosphere of fireflies dancing in the rice paddies at dusk.

In the harvest season of autumn, you can enjoy the scent of matsutake mushrooms, akebi mushrooms, and golden carpets of rice.

In winter, ice candles and illuminations add color to the winter season in Satoyama.

This is where we are located at Yabuta Green Farm.
 In this 120-year-old private house, we work together with the local community to provide a place where people can interact with each other.
 
We also accept and instruct people who wish to make an I-turn and experience rural life. We are also working to revitalize the area.

Why don't you spend a relaxing time in the satoyama of Shinshu, where nature is abundant and the atmosphere is elegant and relaxing?
