“This is an authentic and charming stay for those who want to experience a local side of Japanese farm life. Children especially have a lot to keep them occupied - they get to see the working farm and can pick vegetables. The house is comfortable and comes with all appliances, and the BBQ is a nice touch for some rustic and homely meals.”
Murase Farm Inn offers an authentic Japanese farmstay experience in Shikaoi Town, Hokkaido. Guests are invited to participate in a range of farm activities on this 63-hectare working farm, while neighbouring Daisetsu-zan National Park has an abundance of outdoors activities including fishing, trekking and horse riding.
Guests stay in two cottages on the farm grounds: Cottage A has two separate rooms for hire, accommodating up to three or four guests in each, while Cottage B is a private cottage for up to six people. The country-style, wooden cottages are simple with bedrooms, private en suites, kitchen-diners, and an outdoor terrace.
Fresh eggs, ham and sausages are provided for breakfast, and guests are invited to cook their own dinners on the barbeque using beef, fish, rice and seasonal vegetables from the farm.
Depending on the time of year, guests can participate in harvesting or making pizzas, while farm tours and tractor rides are offered year round.
