Reconnecting with ourselves

The Japanese people have appreciated the abundance of nature while in awe of her, and it has been so for the people of the mid-Izu peninsula. Over time, people have supported each other and have created a unique lifestyle. A stroll in a historic town or in rural nature reveals how these valuable indications are not always tangible, but present nevertheless.

Shuzenji with its hot-spring first found 1200 years ago, has prospered alongside Zen temples associated with rulers of the medieval period. The hot-springs have since continued to offer relaxation, and the Zen temples remain well respected. Known as “Izu’s little Kyoto,” Shuzenji shares a similarity with that of Kyoto in its classical streets and atmosphere.

Heading south from Shuzenj, we come to Mount Amagi, the highest peak in the Izu peninsula. Here at the foot lies Japan’s largest fields of best quality Wasabi.

Situated in a 200-year-old house is “Rakan'' run by chef Atsuko Kato. It is exclusively open to one group a day. All vegetables and rice are directly sourced from neighboring producers, including Amagi’s specialties such as Wasabi and Shiitake mushroom. Seasonal ingredients are cooked by Atsuko with the utmost care, and guests are welcomed like her own family. Enjoy Atsuko’s original cuisine, share conversation, and relax in a nostalgic setting among paddy fields. This is an experience of reconnecting with ourselves.
