    Donguri Workshop is a facility set within a natural area in the mountains with a rich history of agriculture and forestry. Here visitors can take cooking and handicraft classes developed through long-held traditions.
    The Donguri Workshop building was reconstructed from a private house located in Inabu’s Oonose-cho, originally built in 1879.
