Restoring the community ~Iyashi no sato~
Hello everyone!

There is a sightseeing spot called " Saiko Iyashi no Sato neba" only 5 minutes from our Inn.  There are many things to see or do at the area, and you'll have
an amazing view of Mt. Fuji if you are lucky.  

Here is the explanation posted on the facility and I have written down from the snapshot!

"Saiko Iyashi no Sato nenba is a sightseeing spot and a place for communication created by restoring a community of beautiful thatch-roofed houses that was struck by a typhoon in 1966. This project aims to create a community where residents have respect for preserving and inheriting the way daily life was carried out in historic times, traditional techniques, landscape, and natural environment of the community.  In building roofed with thatch grass, you can buy or experience making traditional local handicrafts, or enjoy meals made from local ingredients. In an effort to preserve the community, we also create a new culture based on traditions, and teach thatching skills.  We hope this project will attract wider attention to the traditions and culture of this community, which in turn promote the preservation of these precious assets."
