Established in May 2015. Neither a store nor an accommodation, but a hundred-year-old Japanese house in a tiny village of only 6 houses. Over 70 people have lived together in 5 years and over 8,400 people have visited. Instead of providing a specific experience value, we offers a variety of possibilities. I am enjoying the empathy and development through communal living and various encounters with visitors.
I visited in February, so I was able to enjoy the unique snowy landscape of Tokamachi. Most of the help involved shoveling snow! Haha. The meals were prepared in a style where anyone who wanted to cook would make enough for everyone, so it was okay even if you couldn't cook. I didn't have a car, so the locals and people from the area took me to various places! Tokamachi is active in community development, so I think it's good to go meet various people! It was a quiet settlement, but I had time to spare and had many conversations with my host, Haru-san. It was a time to face myself, and it was a great experience. Thank you.
