Noto’s peninsula is characterized by a mosaic of socio-ecological production managed systems referred to as satoyama, terrestrial-aquatic landscape ecosystems comprising secondary woodlands, plantations, grasslands, farmlands, pasture, irrigation ponds and canals, and satoumi, marine-coastal ecosystems comprising seashore, rocky shore, tidal flats and seaweed/eelgrass beds. The communities of Noto are working together to sustainably maintain the satoyama and satoumi landscapes and the traditions that have sustained generations for centuries... (quoted from Food of Agricultural Organizations of United Nations)

We offer a variety of activities where you can experience our life handed down through generations.

Tea Ceremony

"Sado", tea ceremony, is the Japanese traditional culture describing the importance of "politeness" and "hospitality". Its manners and movements do not seem to be gorgeous, on the contrary, "calm" as the Japanese tend to attempt to find "beauty" in quiet spaces and humble attitudes. In Japanease villages, "hermony" has been extremely valued because most work such as farming in the rice fields has been sustained by a teamwork caring for each other. A lot of residents here have been learning Sado since they were children so you can feel their history communicating with them through the Sado taking about 1 - 2 hours. Please take a photo of you too with rental Kimono.
