Country Life Experiences at an Old Waterwheel Village
Country life and nature experiences by the Seto River
Setonoya, Fujieda City, Shizuoka, is renowned as home to aromatic green tea because of its enviably blessed location nestled between the mountains along the Seto River. A traditional rustic Japanese house located upstream of the river provides the idyllic country life and nature experiences for guests. Upon crossing a suspension bridge, a 250-year old traditional country house with a rustic time weathered waterwheel and its homeowner will warmly welcome you. The highly recommended half-day plan there includes chopping firewood, catching Yamame brook trout by hand, rice cooking on a wood-fired stove, and grilled dishes by the fireplace. This activity will help develop the creativity of children as well as adults. It is also fun to explore nature in the luxuriant forest while staying at Tsubaki Tei.
