Overview

If you would like to visit the countryside of Japan, why don't you visit the northern part of Japan? You can see big rice fields, grand views of mountains and beautiful rivers.
This area is very different from Tokyo. We have a park you can experience Japanese lifestyle in old houses and Japanese toys played by the children in old days. You must feel as if you traveled into past.

What to Expect

You can try Japanese toys played by the children in those days.
You see the 5 typical Japanese-style old houses built in around 1850 years.
Some houses are used to be a sort of shops they sell soy sauce and some are a house of a village headman.
In these houses, you see typical some doors with thick or thin papers and an alcove we decorate a tapestry of caligraphy and flower arrangement.
You can feel tatami mats which is made of straw and rush.
They sometimes have some events which you can try to make some small goods and also calligraphy exibition.

“ Private Shopping Tour ”

Noriko was very kind in coming all the way from her home town out of Tokyo to meet us at the Lobby of our hotel. She guided us by train and subway to Shibuya, Shinjuku and Harajuku. We got the chance to go around to the popular places for shopping in Tokyo. We had a very interesting lunch in Shinjuku something we had not tried before and it was super delicious! Thank you Noriko for your recommendation! All family members got to see busy shopping areas and also buy cute, unique gifts and items. We had a lovely day, it was very worthwhile and Noriko you are the kindest, funny and sweet and helpful person we have met, can’t thank you enough for your time to come with us on our shopping tour! We would definitely recommend you to others as a guide! Kindest regards Haylie & Family f... read more

“ The sweetest guide you can meet in Tokyo. ”

Noriko really made me and my family feel at home with her. She was very helpful with the children always. Stayed much longer, went out of her way and even made serveral restaurant reservations for the following days when she would not be with us. You are great. Thank you.

Noriko:

Thank you for your heartwarming message. I had a fantastic time with you and your family. I really enjoyed talking with you in a restaurant. I'm glad you could try Ramen noodles at Tokyo Station and enjoyed it finally. Your wife, two sons and a daughter are so lovely. I was so happy to be with you and your family. I hope you'll come back to Japan and see you again one day. Thank you!!!
