What is Sutamacho Hishi, Hokuto City, Yamanashi Prefecture?

Sutamacho Hishi is located in the southeast of Hokuto City. Hokuto City, Yamanashi Prefecture, is said to be Sanshi Suimei (the sun shines, the mountains look purple, and the river flows cleanly. Beautiful mountain water). Until 1955, charcoal-grilling was used as a household fuel. There are many people, and it is recorded in the literature that clear smoke of “purple” was rising from the mountainside almost every day.

In addition, the specialty purple flower beans (precious plateau flower beans that grow only in cool areas) are rare products that can only be cultivated in the “Masutomi district” of Sutama-cho and the “Kiyosato district” of Takane-cho in Hokuto City.

We have opened an old folk house inn that takes advantage of the goodness of the area of Sutamacho Hishi.
