Things to See and Do

Here at the Komeyakata guesthouse we offer some unique experiences.

For people wanting to relax, a bike ride amongst the paddy fields and a hot spring bath can help you forget the crowds of Tokyo.
For the more adventurous the many shrines and temples of Yamagata prefecture rival anything that Kyoto or Nara has to offer.


From the famous mountain temple of Yamadera and  the three holy mountains of Dewa to the Geisha-house 'Soumaro' and the hot springs of Zao, Yamagata is home to some of Japans best kept secrets.





However, its the unique experiences that only Komeyakata can provide that will make your stay truely special, whether learning some local dialect, trying your hand at making tofu, miso or soba noodles or joining in one of our farm experience events -harvesting soy-beans or planting rice with local people- we offer a wide range of events and experiences to enrich your stay in Japan.

  Come and learn how to make rice straw sandals and be the envy of all Tokyo!
