The village of Minamiyamashiro is located on the borders of Kyoto, Nara, Shiga, and Mie Prefectures. On the mountaintop, on a plateau at an elevation of 500m is a farmhouse inn that grows pesticide-free blueberries. From early August to late October, you can enjoy blueberry picking as you listen to the birdsong and the babbling of the stream in the fields above which fireflies dance. In winter, you can enjoy wild boar meat, homemade miso, and locally produced vegetables. Eat wild boar hot pot, which is made by boiling vegetables with natural mineral water from the local well. There are also many other gourmet foods that can only be found here, inclduing sukiyaki made with chicken and rich eggs from local breeds, carefully raised in the bountiful natural environment here; as well as lightly-seasoned pheasant hot pot.
