A Soothing Countryside Experience

Mrs. Hitomi Sato is a woman who lives a life of self-sufficiency, surviving off the land. Using ingredients such as fresh river fish, mountainside flora, and self-cultivated soba noodles, her cooking is overflowing with knowledge of the land itself.

Try your hand at a bit of farming, or perhaps take a stroll around the soba field; there’s plenty to experience depending on the season. If only for a little while, you can escape from the stresses of normal life and come to spend some time with Grandma Hitomi. Why not give it a try? While you are away a few hours in the Japanese countryside with some all-natural, homemade cooking that sure will be a soothing experience for you.
