Local festivals
Explore a local market that is held on only 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th January in Tokamachi city! Tokamachi city is the neighboring city of Echigo-Yuzawa, just 30 mins away by train. In the market, you will find local fortune dolls called "Chinkoro" which are made of rice flour and represent a wish for a good harvest next year. There are a variety of shapes, but the basic shape is usually a dog, they are cute and vividly colored! Also, locals set up stalls selling food and a variety of other stuff in the market. This is a good chance to soak in the local Japanese traditional culture.

They are Chinkoro↑

When we go to Tokamachi city, we take a local train called Hokuhoku line. The train is very strong for snow, it doesn't stop because of snow. We will have Japanese lunch made from local vegetable and meats at Ikote, which is an artwork turned restaurant. Enjoy the local produce of Tokamachi that it is famous for! Tokamachi city is famous for its art festival, Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale. It is held every 3 years and about 500,000 people all over the world have come in summer 2018.

まつだい駅より車で10分 Credit card payment
Completed this year in the Matsudai area lies Toronoki House. Building on the beauty of the 100 over year old farm house with “Form & Function” in mind, the farm house was transformed into an accommodation facility in April 2018. The concept is “Life with Tanada (Rice Terrace)” This place will serve as the “Communal Hub” where people who appreciate the beauty of the rice terraces can gather for a myriad of activities. The mastermind of this transformation was Karl Bengs, a German architect, who paid utmost attention down to the smallest detail. The owner, Mr. Akuzawa loves rice terraces, and after travelling the world and seeing various rice terraces, was so mesmerized by this particular one in Tokamachi that he decided to relocate here. Now, he spends his weekends here in Toronoki House hosting and planning activities for the locals and visitors. All while still working in Tokyo during the weekdays. You will be able to catch a glimpse of the beautiful rice terrace scenery in the morning. Come and feel just how time seems to slow down in this place tucked between the rice terraces and beech forest. -About the stay- You will be chartering the whole house. (Chartering will accommodate up to 10pax) The owner will also be staying at the house during your stay. There are plenty of attractions to enjoy that changes with the seasons.

(mountain pass) Just behind lies Waseda University’s seminar block, and as described is surrounded by nature. 10 minutes drive away from Shiba Touge Onsen Unkai. -The rooms- 6 rooms: 5 rooms on the 2 nd floor, & 1 room on the 1 st foor.

This is traditional Japanese house you can use whole house. Good for big group or family. 5 mins from nearest station and 20mins from Tokamachi station. Including picking service. This house is a bit away from the center of Tokamachi city and surrounded by rice field, that is why very quiet and you can hear a national chorus "frog or cricket" at the night.
