Farmhouse Inn Matsuno

Farmhouse Inn Matsuno
After a full day of fun in the mountains or river,
share a drink over a feast of mountain vegetables.

In the Kawaguchi District of Sakegawa Village, there is a tasteful house in a residential area surrounded by vast rice fields. “Farmhouse Inn Matsuno” is a popular lodge for both hands-on learnings for children and short trips for adults. The reason for this may be assorted experiences available and the innkeeper’s personality. He is friendly and unique, sometimes tells in-depth stories peppered with jokes. Guests often enjoy an evening of fun conversation after dinner. The inn is also proud of its delicious cuisine that uses an abundance of fresh mountain produce. Here you will find a space where you can truly relax as if you have returned to your hometown.

After a full day of fun in the mountains or river, share a drink over a feast of mountain vegetables.

The rice fields and mountains spread out in front of and behind the inn. Enjoy the tranquil scenery with plenty of fun and relaxation.

There are so many things you can do to fully enjoy the nature of Sakegawa Village, including rice farming,
cast-net fishing, ayu sweetfish fishing, playing in the snow, straw crafts, etc.
boatswain experience
Take a ride on the Sakegawa River with a “boatswain experience.” You’ll ride a bamboo-leaf shaped boat that is paddled with a pole. You are in safe hands with innkeeper Mr. Sato, who knows the river very well.
snow
There are no limits to what you can do with snow! Build a kamakura icehouse, go sledding, and enjoy the pure snow.
cooking
Enjoy country cooking using plenty of seasonal ingredients, such as mushrooms and natural ayu sweetfish, both specialties of Sakegawa Village.
Play in the river or take a nature walk while enjoying fun talks.
Taste the delicious mountain delicacies that nature produces.
It’s a great way to eliminate the stress of everyday life.

The name “Matsuno” is taken my ancestors who first came to this Kamiobuchi area. I was born in this Kamiobuchi area and started off as a rice farmer. I then started making and selling bento lunches, and in 2013, opened this inn. The food prepared by Mitsuko Araki, who is in charge of cooking, is excellent. We hope you’ll come to try it.

From the Inn

Our inn is located in the northern part of Yamagata Prefecture, deep in the mountains where traditional nature remains. We hope you will experience this nostalgic “countryside” where you can eat mountain vegetable dishes, take walks in the fields, and play in the river.
