- Greeting -

Kusayui  is is a Farmhouse/Guest House in Japan.

Located in Kunisaki City, Oita Prefecture.

 

We were led by a grass called Shichitoui  ,

moved to Kunisaki City.

 

Grass has been an essential part of our lives since ancient times.

Sometimes used as a medicine,

and, It becomes tea and moisturizes the body.

 

By making threads from the fibers of grass and weaving and knitting,

It can be used as a living tool or clothes.

Various grasses have been used in the play of children.

 

In Kunisaki City, which is rich in nature,

I want to "tie" great relationships with many people through grass,

From that thought, I named it "Kusayui".

 

Surrounded by the sounds of nature,
You can spend a relaxing time here.
