About 1,200 years ago, this village was founded around Hattoji Temple on a plateau with an altitude of 400 m. With the village’s thatch-roofed houses and temples scattered about, visitors to Hattoji Furusato Village are treated to a glimpse of an unspoiled corner of Japan’s landscape. The view from Mt. Hattoji features a spectacular landscape with the sea, tanada (rice terrace), and rolling mountains. Featured in the Lonely Planet travel guidebook, this village is a popular destination for tourists from overseas. The Hattoji International Villa, a renovated farmhouse, offers a chance to experience the traditional lifestyle and culture of Japan. With accommodations aimed at foreign travelers, the villa is a popular location for international tourists to communicate and interact.
