What is MOEGINOMURA VILLAGE?
Moeginomura (Moegi Village) is a tourist complex in Hokuto City, Yamanashi Prefecture, located in the Kiyosato Plateau at an altitude of 1,200 meters, about three hours west of Tokyo by car or train. The complex includes Restaurants, Hotel, Brewery, Cafe, Merry-go-round, Music Box Museum, Gift Shops, and Art & Craft Studios.
In Kiyosato, you can see the deep blue sky called ‘Yatsugatake blue’, the ridge lines of Mt.Akadake or Mt.Yokodake, the majestic forests where dormouse and deer live, and a wide variety of vegetation, including subspecies unique to the region. While staying close to those unchanged southern foothills of the Yatsugatake Mountains, we connect the past to the future, and Kiyosato to the world, valuing of coexistence with nature, which is often forgotten in modern life.
Amid the stone walls, the wisdom of our ancestors who cultivated the barren wilderness in the first half of the 20th century, lies the original landscape of Kiyosato, a lifelong favorite of Dr. Paul Rusch, the "father of the development of Kiyosato". In 2012, under the supervision of landscape designer Paul Smither, Natural Gardens MOEGI was established over a period of 10 years, covering approximately 32,000㎡, with more than 700 plant species growing throughout the entire MOEGI Village site.
While listening to the rhymes of nature from one of the largest natural gardens in Japan and hearing the songs of wild birds and small animals playing in the gaps between the stone walls, please stop by popular Kiyosato spots such as "Moeginomura ROCK" restaurant and the Music Box Museum "Hall of Halls". Kiyosato Field Ballet, the only outdoor ballet performance in Japan, has been staged continuously for more than 30 years, and there are many other seasonal events in the village.
Do Your Best and It Must Be First Class.
With Dr. Rusch's words in mind, we will continue to pioneer the future from Kiyosato with you for the next half century.
