-SATOYAMA of Kyoto-
From the old days, Japanese people have co-existed with nature
by nurturing a sustainable way of living.
We call nature where people live in harmony with it,"SATOYAMA", which can be found
in sceneries like well-grown rice fields, green mountains and preserved thatched house architectures.
Satoyama also relates to artisans' philosophy and skills, knowing fully about natural materials.
Currently in Japan's city side Satoyama is very rare to find, but such a countryside
as KEIHOKU is still full of nature's blessings and has preserved the satoyama lifestyle.
