We live in a mountain village near Ichinoseki, in Iwate prefecture, Tohoku. After retiring from an architectural design company, I came back to the place I was born to run this farm. After 40 years away, coming home and seeing the mountains of my birthplace, I remembered the vibrant days of the past, with the leaf tobacco and silkworms. And yet, there are noticeably fewer young people here, and this mountain village is now quieter. We have to do something about that. I love the outdoors and people from different countries, so I rented some abandoned arable land and started a farm raising "wagyu", Japanese cattle. Then I thought I could make it feel like a ranch, and have guests from the cities come and stay. The ranch stretches from the heifer's paddock at the end of the garden to the foot of the mountains. When you get up in the mornings, it feels good to fill your lungs amid the morning dew, don’t you think?
Our home consists of new buildings and aof traditional house built around 150 years ago. I refurnished the traditional building and turned it into a Farmer's Inn. It was my wife’s idea, the lovely Sachiko. When you hear the words "mountain village" you might imagine somewhere that is far away from civilization. But don't worry. There’s a convenience store nearby. Rest assured. In our area we have a cultural centre and a general hospital, so we are still within the bounds of civilization. Nearby, there is also a mountain hotel, a tourist farm and a leading motocross circuit, where major competitions are often held. These races are wondrous events where you can meet all kind of people from famous competitors to manic kids. There is also the site of the Okago Roman Catholic martyrs not far away. At the beginning of the Edo period, this village was a producer of iron-sand, and had a Christian community. However, the shogun’s government’s anti-Christian edicts led to the execution (martyrdom) of over 300 people. The mountains are filled with caves where the Christians were worshipping their God and sites connected to the martyrs. The area also has the Martyrs’ Park, with a museum about these Hidden Christians. In the Kurusu Museum, there are life-size statues of Jesus Christ made by the eminent sculptor Funakoshi Yasutake. After the Great East Japan Earthquake, many pilgrims came to visit. Even today, there is no Buddhist temple in the village, only a single Catholic church. In recent years, Christmas has been celebrated there in grand style. It's an unusual village; we'd be happy to show you around any time.

Right, then… The meals we offer are almost specialities of the countryside, and our specialty is the local dish known as hatto. This is also called suiton or totte-nage. The flour is kneaded and then drawn out and cut into strips, then boiled in a pot. Various vegetables and meat are added, and the result is delicious. Guests from the city often ask for a second helping. But, don’t worry, we can cook other tasty dishes too.
When my wife Sachiko was young, she used to stroll through the streets of Ocha-no-mizu and Kanda, in downtown Tokyo, in her mini-skirts and long coat. And yet… now she is just a countryside granny. Anyway, one thing we are especially proud of is how clean we keep our place. The kitchen is ultra clean, the baths are modern ‘unit baths’, and our toilets are working. This is the one thing we have in common with the city. In addition to having internet and the TV (terrestrial digital, and BS). There's also a laundrette, and guests are allowed to cook for themselves if they choose.

そんなに綺麗な家だと思わなかったんです。予約した時ずいぶん昔からの家だなあと思ったんですが、実際に泊まったら、思ったよりすごく綺麗で嬉しいと思います。外国人の私にとってこのような家は魅力的な家です。畳、布団、綿入ればんちんなどで昔の日本風な家だと感じながら、モダンなトイレ、洗面所、暖房機が全部揃って、とても便利です。昔日本の雰囲気を感じて、畠山さんと幸子さんと暖かいご飯を食べたり、色々話したりして綺麗な経験です。二人は私が娘のように面倒をみて頂いて、すごく楽しくて、心からありがたいと思います。畠山さんと幸子さんの家で過ごした時間、記念はずっと大事にしたいと思います。お父さん、お母さん、いつもお元気で。色々ありがとうございました。

先日は貴重な体験をさせていただきありがとうございました!
築100年以上のお家でございましたが、内装は古き良き文化を残してリフォームされており、お手洗いやお風呂は最新設備でした。とにかく綺麗!この言葉に尽きますね。また、囲炉裏を囲んで食べるお食事はとても美味しく、体験したことないのに懐かしい気分になりました。郷土料理のすいとんは好きですね~、おかわりしちゃいました。宿泊当日から翌日まで色々近辺の文化を案内含め、教えて下さりありがとうございました!非常に充実した旅でした。今度は寒くない季節に訪れます。夏はさらに格別の時間が過ごせるのでは?!と既に妄想しております。
