The venue is one of Japan's foremost persimmon production areas, located at an altitude of 300 m, lasting for over 400 years. In the past, about 150 persimmon farmers were making dried persimmons, but around 2010 the number had decreased to about 8. However, there still remain 3000 good persimmon trees over 100 years old in this Satoyama. Even though the culture of making dried persimmons has declined, people who cherish persimmon trees and this Satoyama remain as they were.
In this plan, you can experience the ultimate LOHAS time in such a persimmon village. While staying for the entire day, you can feel the persimmon culture that remains in this Satoyama. Also, please learn the idea of “LOHAS” that will be passed on to the later generations.
In this plan, you can enjoy activities such as:
There is also a shop where you can buy delicious persimmons as a souvenir.
