[Castle-Town] Located in traditional town where time flows peacefully.

Yonezawa-shi, Yamagata-ken
4-5 days~

Local Characteristics

Located in the southern part of Yamagata Prefecture, it is surrounded by many historical spots as a castle town of the Uesugi family and has many delicious cuisines such as Yonezawa beef, Yonezawa ramen, imoni(simmering potatoes), and La France (pear). In addition, the seasonal changes are beautiful, and in winter, you can go skiing areas in 20~30 minutes, so you can enjoy night skiing depending on the weather.

Concept

We have been accepting not only Japanese but also from abroad such as States, New Zealand, Malaysia, and India. I want to share amazing memories with various people.

Typical One-Week Stay

Days 1-2: Tour historical sites of the castle town, hidden hot springs, and onsens
Days 3-4: Visit Yamagata Bunsyokan, art museums, and Zao Onsen
Days 5-6: Strawberry and cherry picking
During the winter season, enjoy unlimited skiing, sledding, and other activities.
Additionally, experience snow removal and enjoy living in a snowy country.



Typical Daily Schedule of a Host

The main task is managing the studio, so before lessons start, I turn on the heating or cooling and clean up, allowing for a relaxed day.
However, during winter, the parking lot is large, so I spend an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening on snow removal.
As for farming, I help out about once a month on Sundays.
