Heartwarming farm stays in rural Japan

Akita’s Odate region offers the perfect respite from hectic urban life

Get in touch with a different side of Japan in Odate, home to the world-famous Akita dog.
Stay over, bond with your farming hosts and experience a day in their life. Tending to rice fields, pickling vegetables or harvesting apples— even clearing snow off roofs in winter - there’s always something to be done.
Then, after sundown and when it gets chillier, huddle around a piping hot pot and learn how to make kiritanpo-nabe stew, a local specialty.
Revel in the opportunity to mingle with locals and make lasting memories. Odate is just a 70-minute flight from Tokyo’s Haneda Airport.
