Today, I would like to introduce "Farm Stay" in Honkawane town, 
Shizuoka prefecture

Our guest from France.
She enjoyed 2 nights at this farmers' house last June.

The lady wearing the red apron is Ms.Watanabe, the host of this farmers' inn.
They held a vegetable B.B.Q for this vegetalian guest.

You can visit this place by taking the  Oigawa Railway.
We recommend to board this Steam Locomotive at Shin Kanaya Station.

This is very rare Japanese old style post box that we seldom see anymore.

The farmer can pick you up at this  station.

Some farm houses can accept overseas travelers.
You can enjoy vegetable harvest experience, cooking dinner with farmers,
making soba noodles, sleeping in traditional Japanese tatami rooms,  communicate with locals, go to onsen / Japanese hot springs, e.t.c.

If you are interested in farm house stay, this area is recommended.
It is easy to visit it by train and people are very warm.

We can introduce and arrange  a farm house on request.
