Kunma Suisha-no-sato is a michi-no-eki in Kuma, Tenryu-ku, Hamamatsu City. The official place name is "Kuma," but it's known locally as "Kunma." On weekends, it is visited by many people such as motorcyclists, cyclists, families out for drives, and more.
Onsite there is a restaurant "Kasan no omise (Mom's restaurant)" where you can have soba (buckwheat) noodles with rich, local ingredients, and a souvenir shop - "Buratto," where you can buy fresh, local soba, konjak, miso, manju and wooden goods. The experience-based studio "Suisha-no-sato" where you can experience making soba or Gohei-mochi is also popular.
The walking course is recommended for people who want to enjoy nature more. We also recommend you to use the farmer's guesthouse, if you're interested in a longer, more relaxed stay.
Why don't you experience the Satoyama life, in a small village nestled in the mountains?
