Living in the log house of my dreams
Affected by the TV drama gKitano kuni kara (From the Northern Land),h I wanted to live in a log house no matter how small it might be. The most pleasant time I have ever spent was when we built this log house. We made logs from Douglas fir trees from North America (a type of fir). We then stripped the bark on our own and made logs with the help of our acquaintances. Log builders and carpenters also rendered a helping hand.
Many of our guests are now local patrons. People say that our signboard is difficult to find because it is hidden by trees. They laugh at us, asking if we are truly serious about doing business. In winter, we put out special seats in front of the stove. It is popular among tourists to unwind and warm up beside the woodstove. Our cat is also very popular. There are even people who come just to see the cat.



With Goemonburo and stained glass, you will feel a fresh sensation.
Goemonburo is a bathtub made of cast iron, which was used in medieval days. I was given this tub by a nearby farmer. The surrounding stone masonry and hut were all built by hand by my husband, and it took five years to complete them. People who are motivated to build something do everything on their own, including preparations. These days, both adults and children alike have no idea how to make a fire. Therefore, they enjoy splitting wood and firing the kiln. Of course, it takes about an hour and a half for the water to warm up. During that time, I want them to take care of the fire and relax.
By the way, there are a few opportunities to cut glass in our daily lives. Here, people can cut glass and not be scolded for it. Therefore, visitors enjoy this opportunity and make the most of it. Once, students on a school excursion came here and I spotted a student who looked like a delinquent. He was working very seriously and not fooling around or acting bored. Later, the teacher told me that he had never seen the student that serious. I was pleased to see such an attitude.
