A guide of Tama, Tokyo’s traditional culture of eating and agriculture

People may be surprised to hear that, there are many farms and rice fields in Tokyo.
Aithough it’s positioned only an hour away by train from Shinjuku, Kunitachi-city, where our base is located, still has so many farms at which we could harvest many kinds of seasonal crops.

There are also “Yahotenmanguu” which has a history of more that 1100 years and traditional houses that has been there for a few hundred years along Koshukaido, right behind our base.
How would you like to stay with us, see and feel the real atmosphere of Japan’s local culture?

Experienced NPO staffs and the local university’s students will guide you step by step into the deep history and culture of Japan. A memorable time and experience guaranteed!

” Hatakenbo”: Our agricultural base

” Hatakenbo”:
Our agricultural base

At our farm, we grow over a total of 50 kinds of seasonal vegetables throughout the year. By seeing the rice field, you can feel the season just like the locals do. We also have two horses, a sheep, and chickens; learn the cycle of life while playing with them. It’s not only the livestock that you could see! In summer there are many aquatics lives in the river that you could observe.

Spending a slow time, feeling the seasons passing by while still being at Tokyo is possible here.

” Tsuchinokoya”:
traditional Japanese house

We are renting part of this region’s landlord’s house as a restaurant and am using it to support children development.

The restaurant is open on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday for lunch, and Saturday for dinner. People who have harvested vegetables could have the freshly picked vegetables for lunch here. Out of the window is a beautiful garden you could see while having lunch. Since the restaurant’s floor is Tatami (traditional Japanese floor that is soft), so small children could play on the ground without getting injured.

We are holding child rearing support activities daily, so you could also see them learning and growing up here.

The streets in Kunitachi city are arranged radial with the station in the center and there are many shops along those streets. On the main street, there is also Hitotsubashi University, the most prestigious business school in Japan, in which their campus are historical architectures. Beyond the radial streets are farms and rice fields and how food is produced and consumed locally shows us the ideal way of living in a rural city.
