Located to the east of Toyooka, is the countryside of Tanto. Famous for its tulips, Tanto is a village in the countryside with rich natural surroundings. The most popular times to visit are in the spring for the tulip festival and also in the autumn to see the bright fiery red leaves of enkianthus bushes at Ankokuji Temple. You can also experience country living at the “Nouka Minshuku” (farm guest-house).
Farming and Countryside Dining Experience
There is a guesthouse located in this lushly green mountain village. You can experience farming with a former farming family that makes soba, tofu and konnyaku jelly.
Get your fill of seasonal vegetables, freshly-made tofu, soba and more with this countryside cooking while sitting around the fireplace. This farm-stay is highly recommended for those who want to experience life in a farming community.
