Inaka Connect is and will always be an ongoing project which will evolve into avenues that arise from our interests, old and new friendships, chance meetings, and most importantly the desire to continue to enjoy and introduce the beauty of the Japanese “inaka” to all.

The first step in our “inaka” (countryside) journey offers a chance to experience the Yuzawa Area in Niigata. This area is a gem just a stone’s throw away from the Tokyo Metropolis; a gem whose value fortunately too few have realized thus far. Although this beautiful area has plenty to offer year around; for now we offer you the winter; Snow Country style.

With snow amounts and conditions matched by few & a winter ski season that easily rivals its more famous neighbors we invite you to the “inaka,” the Inaka Connect.
