In Ohinata, Sakuho-town, Nagano-pref.
We built a small cottage at a mountain side of the natural woodland which separated for a while from the colony.
The time flows graceful here, while the interval of farm labor or works in the mountain.
It is a special time to have Coffee or Beer while looking at Mt. Morai on the other side.
You can spend time, being surrounded by nature...
reading books slowly, taking a walk the mountain, listening songs of birds while lie on a hammock in the forest.

Where you’ll be

Sakuho, Minamisaku District, Nagano, Japan

Our village Ohinata is in the countryside amongst the mountains. Examples of things you can do in our countryside include; climb Mt. Morai, go to the river, walk in the village, visit a heritage shrine on the hill, and so on.

There are no shops or restaurants in Ohinata, but it takes only 10 minutes by car to the central town of Sakuho. Here, you can buy everything you need. The supermarket, Tsuruya, and the farmer’s market next door, have many kinds of fresh groceries!

Yachiho Kogen is a beautiful nature area which is 40 minutes away by car. It is a very nice place for hiking to lakes and in forests. Some hot springs are 30 minute by car.

It is not convenient for sightseeing in Karuizawa, because It takes over 1.5 hours from karuizawa to my place.

こんにちは。 Sanson Terraceの岩下大悟と申します。長野県の佐久穂町という小さな山あいの村に、妻と娘とネコの寅吉と一緒に暮らしています。 出身は隣りの佐久市というところですが、地元の友人たちと小さな小屋を建て始めたことをきっかけに、 空間づくりや暮らし、自分たちにとっての山村文化に向き合うようになりました。 また、フィンランドに滞在した際には、森の暮らし、サマーコテージ文化、暮らしのデザイン性などに大きな影響を受けました。 そんな出来事や出会いに身を任せていたら、いつの間にか自分の生き方が定まっていきました。 今は ” Sanson Terrace (山村テラス) “という屋号で、自分たちが創りたい空間を、自分たちの手で少しずつ形にしています。プロの大工ではありませんので時間はとてもかかりますが、その土地に根ざした味わい深い個性溢れる空間を、少しずつ増やしていきたいと思っています。 これまでに4つの空間を作りました。 ・"山村テラス" since 2014 (https://www.airbnb.jp/rooms/2207040) ・"月夜の蚕小屋" since 2016 (https://www.airbnb.jp/rooms/12629594) ・"ヨクサルの小屋" since 2018 (https://www.airbnb.jp/rooms/24571598) ・"木馬のワルツ" since 2021 (https://www.airbnb.jp/rooms/51018199) 佐久地域は本当に食文化の高い地域です。 野菜、果物、山の地魚、ハムやウィンナー、パン、日本酒、味噌・醤油などの発酵食品など、食材からレストラン・cafeまで、個性溢れる素敵な人たちが土地に根ざした確かな食文化を築いています。 有名な観光名所などはあまりありませんが、"確かな暮らし"がここにはあります。 僕たちが暮らす文化圏を、じっくりお楽しみ頂ければ嬉しく思います。 Hello, I’m Daigo. I live in a small village surrounded by mountains with my wife, our daughter and a cat. The village name is Sakuho town in Nagano. My life changed a lot by experiences of building a cottage with my friends, and of being big influenced from the summer-cottage culture in Finland. My job and lifework is creating new countryside lifestyle and culture for our generation through building spaces by ourselves hands. I’m not professional carpenter, so it takes long time to build, but I would like to make spaces which is unique, individuality, warmly, and rooted in the lands. At this moment, I have finished to build four spaces and I would like to build more spaces little by little… ・"off-grid tiny cottage" since 2014 (https://www.airbnb.jp/rooms/2207040) ・"old silk worm house" since 2016 (https://www.airbnb.jp/rooms/12629594) ・"hut Juksul" since 2018 (https://www.airbnb.jp/rooms/24571598) ・"waltzing horse" since 2021 (https://www.airbnb.jp/rooms/51018199) You must understand that food cultures in this area are really high when you stay here. Vegetables, fruits, fishes from mountain rivers, hams and sausages, breads, Japanese sake, cafes, restaurants… Many fascinating people build food cultures rooted in this area. There are no famous sightseeing spots, but there are excellent lives. I am so happy you enjoy our life cultures and spend relaxing time!
