[Between the Valley]”What we can do for our next generation?” living rural life with the forefront thoughts.

Uzuto Sera-cho, Sera-gun, Hiroshima-ken
4-5 days

Local Characteristics

This area has been used as a manor since the end of the Heian period (794-1192), and rice and livestock farming have flourished here. In the Uzudo district, where you will be staying, a “rain-making ceremony” has been kept since the Edo period (1603-1868), which is very rare in Japan. Why don’t you join us and think about what we can do to preserve the culture for the next generation?

Concept

With many people having to be born or move to rural areas due to their parents’ occupations, caring for family members, job relocation, and other reasons, let’s create the lifestyle that we truly and sincerely desire! We are now preparing to work on creating a community where people can enjoy rural life and interact with the world on an equal footing.

3 Key Points

1Host’s introduction

Six family. Husband, two kids and husbands grandparents. Wanting to work in my own way even though I live in a mid-mountainous area, I started my own business as a public relations consultant. I also works as a lecturer, professional manager, and communicator. I holds a master's degree in career design.

2You can interact with people like this!

You can interact with the immigrant community, the foreign community working in the town, and groups working to maintain the rural landscape. As we plan study tours and prepare to establish a NPO to organize events that make the most of local treasures, we can organize opportunities that match your interests.

3You can experience like this!

You can enjoy mountain play, bug catching, pizza making, and nagashi-somen (flowing somen noodles) anytime!
We also offer nature crafts that even small children can complete, such as making dream catchers and God's eyes using bamboo.
Additionally, we have a yuzu orchard that we currently use only for our family's consumption, so any involvement from you would be appreciated!In the summer, firefly viewing is highly recommended.
I worked as a part-time Japanese and Japanese language instructor at a junior high school, so I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn Japanese.

video editing classes are offered. We also hold hybrid events on an irregular basis throughout the year, such as video editing classes (for children/non-attending children), book reading sessions (for adults), and philosophy cafes (for all ages). As for the forest playground/adventure playground, it was suspended due to the Corona disaster, but will be planned as soon as it is ready to resume. If you wish to use the sauna, you will need to pay for firewood (actual cost).
