ABOUT UEKI

Blessed with rich natural resources and fertile soil, Kumamoto is a major production area for high-quality fruits and vegetables.

Ueki is the top agricultural region in Kumamoto, and one of the top producers of watermelons and eggplants in all of Japan. Many farming villages are now struggling with a shortage of people to carry on farming operations, but agriculture in Ueki continues to thrive since the region is blessed with an abundance of young people to inherit the industry’s future.

While Ueki supports Japan’s food supply with modern agricultural operations, the region is also home to many small rustic and old-fashioned villages where time seems to have stopped, making it the perfect area to experience Japan’s good old countryside.

TOUR OPTIONS

Ueki is Kumamoto’s top agricultural area, but it’s actually well-known for its hot springs too.
While rare in most parts of Japan, many facilities in Kumamoto offer private hot spring baths known as “family baths,” and these baths can be found all across Ueki’s hot springs area as well.
These private family baths are refilled with fresh hot spring water for every visitor, making them a comfortable option to enjoy hot springs even for those not particularly fond of Japan’s public baths. If you would like to visit a family bath, please notify us in advance by email.
