In March, when spring approaches, a market event will be held on the shores of Lake Tateshina in Nagano Prefecture. It is “LAKE SIDE MARKET” of TINY GARDEN Tateshina.
TINY GARDEN Tateshina is a new spot that opened grand last fall. The facility has three styles of accommodation: lodge, cabin, and camping, as well as shops, cafés, and hot springs.
“LAKE SIDE MARKET” is a market held in such a highland garden. Food and craft works by local producers, as well as a one-day limited store of the brand Urban Research, which operates TINY GARDEN Tateshina, will also open.
By the way, this time the theme of “Natural Agar” is set. Chino City, Nagano Prefecture, where Tateshina is located, and the surrounding Suwa area are the only natural agar production areas in the world. At this event, we will explore the charm and history of natural agar, and the culture of the Suwa region, where it is produced, from the perspective of TINY GARDEN. There are talk events to learn about agar as well as storytelling of the picture book “Baba Grandma’s Kanten Ryori” and sales of Japanese sweets using agar.
In addition, Satoshi Fujimoto, editor-in-chief of the free magazine “Nonbiri” published by Akita Prefecture, has a talk event entitled “Editing is missing in the area? The magic of“ editing ”that everyone can use.” There are many events that can be enjoyed by adults and children, such as manufacturing workshops that can be enjoyed at home. This is a market where new encounters with “clothing, food, housing, and play” can be found.
The event will be held on March 8th. Admission is free, so feel free to drop in!
