BBQ At the Coast
At a shop where you can buy local ingredients,we brought meat,vegetables,
”MIITOMAI”riceballs,and green tea,and the amount was just right for 2people.
Trying the Tent Sauna
As someone who always uses the sauna room in Japanese onsens, I was quite curious to try this one. When we were preparing the tent earlier, I noticed that this wasn’t just any tent. This was a tent made specifically for a tent sauna.
When water touches the rocks, it evaporates instantly from the heat, creating more steam in the room, making it more like a sauna.
We let the stove warm up longer than planned and I didn’t expect the tent to trap so much heat inside. I was quite surprised and it was so hot that I had to come back out for a breather in a matter of seconds.
Coming out from the tent sauna, the once hot and humid summer weather felt really cool and refreshing. The same wind that felt hot earlier now feels really cold and it feels like its autumn.
This was quite a fun experience and honestly, I could’ve stayed in there all day.
Rest Up at a Style Farmhouse
Hanare Rokutsuki is definitely one of the most unique places I’ve ever stayed at. To start off, there’s only one room available for accommodation, meaning only one group of up to 4-5 people can stay here at a time.
From the living room there’s cement walls separating the bedroom space, a glass wall separating the kitchen, and a sliding glass door with a wide open view of the rice fields. The living room definitely has a trendy cafe vibe and the kitchen has pretty much anything you need to cook up anything.
You keep your shoes on in the living and kitchen but you take your shoes off for the bedroom. The bedroom is very minimal with a wide open floor for futon mattresses and some other amenities on the sides.
There’s a ladder on the right side leading to the loft space which has a similar spacious floor area and also some windows from which you can peek down into the living and kitchen.
You can also choose a plan that includes a French dinner at therestaurant and a specialbreakfast.

I’ve experienced so much just in Meiwacho already and I’m more than excited for the next 2 weeks I’ll be traveling around Mie Prefecture!
