Location

Tanbasasayama-shi, Hyogo, Japan

Tamba Sasayama city is designated as Japan Heritage with the properties of Sasayama castle, the townscape of castle town, Tamba ceramics which is one of the 6 oldest kilns of Japan, and "Dekansho" folk dance and music. This small city with population of 39,000 people locates just in the center of west Japan, Hyogo prefecture. Despite of the good accessibility from Kyoto or Osaka (1.5 hours from each city), there still remains good classic old atmosphere with traditional looking houses, villages, paddy fields surrounded by mountain basin. There are some roads which is designated as the Important Preservation Districts for Groups of Historic Buildings by government. This unfamiliar small town is where you can find gem of Japan, which is much more quiet place with less tourists than Kyoto or Osaka. Michiko is also an expert guide of the town not only as a host of Umetan FUJI.

Hi! I'm Michiko, the owner of Umetan FUJI. I am from Hyogo prefecture which Tamba Sasayama belongs. I returned to Hyogo from Tokyo in 2017 because I was attracted to this city "Tamba Sasayama" which is really local based, full of gem with classic life in the countryside. I see here everyday "THIS IS JAPAN". I also love food culture here with fresh good vegetables especially Edamame of black soybean in October. Harvest and eat it! I will take you to the fields! はじめまして。兵庫県出身のみちこと申します。2017年、東京から兵庫へ戻りこの宿をオープンしました。この丹波篠山に残る古き良き日本、野菜やジビエなどの質の高い食材に惹かれ移住して4年。もともと都会大好き街遊び大好きな人間ですが、いまは小さな集落の暮らしを楽しんでいます!特に10月の黒大豆枝豆はぜひ食べていただきたいです!私と一緒に枝豆狩りに行きませんか??
