What you'll do

Have you eaten the world famous rice from the Guinness book of records?
“Echigoyuzawa” is the type of rice from the Guinness book of records.
Why was rice from the Guinness book of records created in Echigoyuzawa town?

There are three reasons
① In summer, there is a big difference between day and nighttime temperature.
② In the spring, when snow melts, the ground is full of slush.
This is abundant in minerals and nutrition.

Almost all farmers use the same technique to make Guinness Bok of Records rice.
③Farmers make an original manure which contain earthworms and water fleas which have died in the ground.
The earthworm droppings also become fertilizer. As a result, sweet rice is produced.
One farming family's rice made it in the Guinness book of records in 2017. It also got the "world's best rice" authorization.
This rice has won a gold medal at a 2018 Japanese rice contest. We are very proud of these results. It is, however, rare to find Echigoyuzawa rice in Tokyo.

Let me encourage you to try our famous rice.
Besides, I have prepared vegetables, and fish produced in this area. This is considered a high-quality fish in Tokyo.
Sushi cannot be prepared from river fish, only from sea fish.
As a local of Echigoyuzawa, I have experience that only a local person has.


And we'll meet in JR Echigoyuzawa station at 11am.
So we'll walk to BBQ area about 15~20min.

Very unique experience especially for whom never tried wild BBQ before. Toru is an old hand in preparing everything while controlling the time. The place without him we can never find and reach in Yuzawa. And it is a really beautiful place. I would definitely recommend this to others as it is interesting, budget and unique.

I'm camping regularly. However, I have never camped in winter. And 2 m of snow was the first time. It was anxious because there was much snow but Toru gave good advice and the camp succeeded. I eat meat and rice to eat in the snow, very delicious. It was a lifetime memory that I was able to camp in the snow. I recommend this experience tour. I will also go camping. Thank you

とても貴重な体験ができました。 サバイバルBBQと言うので、最初は少し不安があったのですが、湧き水を使ったり、燃料となる薪を集めたり、着火剤を使わず火をおこすなど、普通のBBQでは出来ない体験をすることができました。 一から準備をして、食材を焼いていくので、食べた時の感動や美味しさも倍増します。今度は夏の時期にまた行きたいと考えています。

サバイバルBBQ。 雪が見える場所でBBQをしたのは初めてでした。 空気の良い中、自分で湧き水を汲んで木を取りにいく。 まさに自給自足のような生活です。 本当体験が出来ました!
