    Living in Iroha-sou

    Slowly flowing time with the seasons

    The house on the slope, where you sweat in the fields in the summer and warm up with a kotatsu in the winter, is a little inconvenient, but you can spend a relaxing time walking with nature. “Why don’t you experience Onomichi’s life at a Showa house like a grandma’s house?
