Welcome to our blog!
We are Mayumi and Rinoka from Tokoha Univrsity in Shizuoka City.
We are internship students at Local Travel Partners and we are majoring in English at Tokoha University in Shizuoka City.
Our role is to introduce our recommended spots in Shizuoka through writing blog posts in English.
We would like to introduce a good place where you can enjoy Japanese traditional lifestyle.
Before that, let us talk about our present lifestyles.
These days, there are so many useful things in our life.
For example, we have rice cookers and stoves to cook anything.
Thanks to them, we do not have to spend a lot of time or labor.
But because of them sometimes we do not use our time properly.
Sometimes don’t you want to get out of such a life?
If so, we recommend you visit SUISHAMURA in Fujieda City, Shizuoka.
We also would like to contribute some satisfaction with your current life.
You can definitely enjoy new discoveries.
Let us show you more detail about SUISHAMURA.
It is located in the central part of Shizuoka Prefecture and it takes 30 minutes by car or 1 hour by bicycle from JR Fujieda Station.
If you want, Local Travel Partners are glad to arrange car transportation from JR Fujieda station or JR Shizuoka station and activities at Suisha-Mura.
At Suisha-Mura, they are providing 4 plans that you can experience.
Let us show you one by one.
1, Half-day experience plan
In this plan, you cut firewood, cook rice, catch fish by yourself, make a fire and everyone eats around the hearth.
You can enjoy meals made with only natural things.
This plan is popular with families.
2, Lunch plan at the hearth
You can eat the ingredients from the local area and bake them in the hearth.
You can spend a relaxing time surrounded by greenery.
3, Rental space plan
In this plan, you can rent the 250 year-old folk house to hold an event or shoot a movie and so on.
4, The tent site night plan
You can bring your own tent and stay there.
You can also mix it with other plans.
We participated to a half-day experience plan.
In a nutshell, it was a really good experience.
We were able to get along with other guests who we met for the first time and enjoyed talking with them.
By making every things from zero, we were able to know the natural color of materials.
It was a good stimulus for our busy days.
We also made a short video of our experience at Suisha-Mura.
We hope you enjoy our video!
In the video, we headed to Suisha-Mura by bicycle from a guest house named Natural Tea Tsubakitei.
This is an old private house for rent.
At the end, we stopped at “Kakinokizaka no ie” near Tsubakitei.
You can enjoy Shizuoka local food there.
We enjoyed shaved ice and rice cakes.
The atmosphere of the shop and the owner was very cozy.
You will be able to experience the Japanese atmosphere there as well.
Both located 15 minutes by bicycle from Suisha-Mura.
If you are interested, why don’t you go to SUISHA-MURA?
Thank you for reading our post.
We hope you will enjoy a meaningful journey!
