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.
The rice fields and mountains spread out in front of and behind the inn. Enjoy the tranquil scenery with plenty of fun and relaxation.
cast-net fishing, ayu sweetfish fishing, playing in the snow, straw crafts, etc.
Taste the delicious mountain delicacies that nature produces.
It’s a great way to eliminate the stress of everyday life.
Chef Mitsuko Araki
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.
