About this Nohaku
Delicious asparagus dishes and other local cuisines!
Megumi (恵) locates in Sago (佐護), one of the most nature-rich areas in Tsushima. The host of Megumi has been an asparagus farmer for over 20 years and regularly sells them to a market. Using this fresh vegetable, you would enjoy delicious asparagus dishes in many fashions!
Of course, Megumi uses not only asparagus but also other products of Sago! For example, you would enjoy Sago-rice, the most famous rice in Tsushima. Also, we serve you fresh seafood which we buy from the local fishermen. A combination of “rice” and “Sashimi (raw fish)” is perfect!
Enjoy harvesting asparagus!
You can try harvesting asparagus by staying at Megumi. Through this experience, you would learn how Japanese farmers work to grow their vegetables. We would use the asparagus you harvested for your dinner, and it would be more delicious than usual!
The nature-rich Sago and Tsushima leopard cats
Sago is also famous for the connection between Tsushima leopard cats (ツシマヤマネコ). This nature-rich area, known for its rice production, has a wide area of paddy fields. These fields are a habitat for many animals: the prey for the Tsushima leopard cats (Tsushima-inherit cats). Thus, Sago is an ideal environment for the cats, and you might have more chances to see this wildlife than any other else!
What to see when you visit Sago?
