Fodor's Expert Review Shunran no Sato

16--9 Miya-chi, Hosu-gun, Ishikawa-ken, 927-0322, Japan

Close to 50 traditional houses in this farming village at the end of the peninsula have been turned into minshuku like Shunran-no-Sato, giving you the chance to experience rural life, including meals (included in the rate) that are as local as you can get—the rice is harvested from paddies outside the houses. Try your hand at chopping firewood, harvesting rice, making jam, or dyeing fabric with the villagers' patient instruction. Email is the best way to correspond.
