First of all, I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our website, "Aidaueayama Tsunagu" Guesthouse.
It's been 10 years since I moved here to the Kaminoyama area of Mimasaka City, Okayama Prefecture, and I've been revitalizing an old house that was built over 80 years old. I started living in the terraced rice paddies, had a family, and thought it would be fun to share some of the richness of life here, so I started the guest house.
I would be happy to show visitors the life of the immigrants and the local satoyama. There are beautiful photo spots of terraced rice fields, hot spring facilities, and walking trails in the surrounding area, so please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you soon.
