[Full Stars and Open Field with the Nature]Liven Up Rural Area working with Young Settlers.

Iitate-mura, Soma-gun, Fukushima-ken
4-5 days~

Local Characteristics

Iitate Village is located on the Pacific Ocean side of Fukushima Prefecture. In the past, the village flourished mainly through agriculture and stockbreeding, and became famous for its highland flower cultivation and brand-name Iitate beef. Recently, the village has seen an increase in the number of young people moving to the area, creating a new and lively atmosphere.

Concept

With the population of permanent residents declining, we are hoping to increase the number of related residents, and are actively planning participation in local events, including petit agricultural experiences and tours of local hot spots, in order to attract people in younger age groups from urban areas and create a lively village and exciting experience. And I’m working that I want to make more in charge of the platform for the people who are visiting.

3 Key Points

1Host’s introduction

The owner has been serving the principal of the high school likes to interact with people and take care of the visiters so much. He loves camping, visiting hot-spot, and outdoor activities.

2You can interact with people like this!

Since here is the Guest House, our motto is to have the time to interact with visiters. We can have BBQs together, and since I also represent a local sports club, we can play a variety of sports in the gymnasium or on the playing field. We can also connect you with local farmers and business people for hands-on exchanges.
