For over 30 years, Ayumi has welcomed guests into her home in the foothills of the Yatsugatake Mountains. Fields, streams, and forests fill the peaceful village where she and other locals continue to live in harmony with nature. Try your hand at farming, pick mountain veggies, and even make your own seasonal jam. This experience includes a healthy dinner and breakfast, which you can prepare with Ayumi. Whether you're traveling solo or in a group, you're sure to feel at home at Tateshina Kitchen House.
Ayumi strives to live authentically and enjoy life to the fullest in everything she does. As the seasons change, she is grateful for the blessings of the mountains, the blessings of the fields, and the energy of the land.
From 1982 to 2018 Ayumi ran a cozy guest house called Pokkari Gumo, and is currently the owner of Tateshina Kitchen House. At this new location she offers a retreat plan open to one group per day, and you can even stay for up to a week - a great option for a relaxing workation.
With over 20 activities such as traditional cooking, DIY medicinal herb beauty cream, farmwork, and wood chopping, it's easy to make the most of your rural retreat.

While reflecting on the origin of healing and making the most of nature, Ayumi helps guests to experience the happiness of a peaceful moment.
