Make a lucky charm imbued with your greatest wish, an experience only available in Hinode-machi!

Japan has lucky charms named "Gomafuda," a wooden board with a prayer that one's heartfelt wish will come true.  Hinode-machi is surrounded by the mountains, so its main industries are forestry and woodworking. The town ranks first in the production of gomafuda and soboba (stupa), which have been produced since the Edo period (1603-1868).  Come live through traditional Japanese culture from the Edo eramake and your own gomafuda, imbued with your wish

After the experience, you can buy "smoked cheese" (648yen) which is a specialty of Hinode-machi.  We highly recommend that you try it!
