Walking Around Miyama Village
I’ve done many trips to Miyama village, and love the reaction of my guests when they first catch a glimpse of Miyama Village. It’s setting in a mountain valley and surrounding rice fields makes the village look like it comes out from a story book.
For my guests, I think they are pleasantly surprised because it’s totally different from the modern skyscrapers they were used to seeing in Tokyo or Osaka. For me, being in that village helps me to learn about what life was like long ago in these Japanese mountainous villages, and it’s an insight into my own roots too.
