The Ouse Rural Tourism Association was established in 2004 with its primary goal to promote the farms in the Ouse area of Koriyama, Fukushima Prefecture. Originally focusing on farmhouse pensions accommodation and agricultural experiences, the association now offers companies, university students and general participants the chance to participate in a variety of activities, social exchange programs, and workshops.
The purpose of the association’s activities is threefold: to allow those who live in urban areas the chance to experience the beauty and bounty of the countryside, to raise the local community’s awareness of the region, and to rejuvenate the town of Ouse itself. Now, approximately 15 years after the establishment of the program, the association aims to increase revenue by improving the program acceptance system, and to further encourage collaboration within the region.
