Local Characteristics

Kaga City in Ishikawa Prefecture has prospered under the Kaga Hyakumangoku Clan established by the Maeda Clan as a city of trade Kitamae fishing boats and hot spring tourism. The city has a beautiful traditional townscape with distinctive red-tiled roofs and is surrounded by nature in the satoyama and sea. Kutani pottery, indigo dyeing, and traditional wood craftworking are existent all close, and the Hashidate fishing port, the foundation of Ishikawa’s food culture, delivers fresh seafood. The area is a fascinating mix of industry and digital technology that attracts unique people and businesses.


While everyone is looking for hints on how to work and]live in their way, remote work and multi-location living have become common starting with Covid. There is a strong demand for people to give meaning to what it means to liveandwork in a particular area. Through the provision of guesthouses and shared houses, we aim to create a comfortable place where people, goods, and things always intermingle, and to create value for local industriesandhuman resources.
