About
Experience the rural farm life of Japan through a farmers homestay experience in Yamagata where you can stay in a charming farmhouse and join the farmers for an early morning harvest and learn how to cook a variety of traditional dishes together. These experiences take place in the outskirts of Tsuruoka City at a farmers homestay called Naa in collaboration with various farmers from this region. There are various types of crops that can be harvested together with the farmers such as dadachamame soy beans in mid-August and even winter turnips in January and February. See below for more information and note that we will continue to add more options as we work out the details with the farmers.

四季を通じて自然と一体になれる仏教寺院です。1,000段の石段の上にある、山頂の五大堂からの景色は平安時代から変わらない景色です。あわせて俳聖芭蕉の真筆がたくさんある「山寺芭蕉記念館」も訪れたい。
