Partnering with local farmers
Surrounded by precipitous mountains like Mt. Mitoku, our contracted farmers grow rice in mystical terraced rice fields in the secluded mountains in Misasa. The village is situated in the sunny valley that stretches east to west, blessed with fresh water, air and fertile soil.
Mt. Mitoku is one of Japan’s three main sacred places for Shugendo sect and has a harsh training environment. The farming village is located nearby, experiencing severe temperature differences annually. Rice and soy beans grown in such conditions are full of nutrients. Our contracted farmer’s koshihikari rice is called “Maboroshi no (illusionary) Misasa rice.” We cook these rice with an underground spring water, creating an unforgettable taste.
*Seasonal rice porridge is generally served for dinner. If you prefer white rice, please contact us in advance.
