Background of the birth of Minami Shirakami Base

While Fujisato Town is blessed with a rich green environment, the town is aging and the population is declining. Minami Shirakami Base is a place where people from outside the area can interact with the townspeople, with the hope that outsiders will be energized by nature and delicious food, and that local residents will be stimulated and energized by the interaction. We want Minami Shirakami Base to be a hub that can revitalize the townspeople, the local residents, and the entire area.

There is no hustle and bustle of the city here, nor any bright neon lights. Why not get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and have some time for yourself? We are waiting for you at Minami Shirakami Base, a base in the countryside that is worth visiting.


Fujisato Genki Juku, which operates Minami Shirakami Base, was founded on October 1, 2010. In order to brighten up the area where the aging population is progressing, they are working on environmental conservation activities such as preserving firefly habitats and rice terraces.

Recently, we have focused on efforts to expand the number of people connected to the farm, focusing on running farm inns and working with university student groups, with the cooperation of supporters, mainly in the Tokyo metropolitan area, Sendai, Akita, and other areas.
