TRIP ALONG THE OI RIVER
Green tea culture of the Oi River where both a nostalgic feeling and modernity mix coexist.
Upstream the Oi River, you will find nostalgic landscapes with a traditional lifestyle. Taeko, your host, and the owner of the 130-year old farmhouse will welcome you. The house is located 410m above sea level, overlooking a tea field and mountain ridges. If you venture outside at night, the star-filled sky will mesmerize you. The Farmhouse’s slow life experience offers plans that include tea-picking, searching for wild vegetables, and harvesting vegetables and fruits in season. In the summer, you can enjoy BBQ. Exchanges with local people through these activities in nature will also be a memorable event. Walking along the mountain path behind the house while viewing Mt. Fuji is also very pleasant. After returning from your trek, you'll find Taeko awaiting you at the entrance with a welcoming smile.
