Tono ranchTono ranch  We invite you to our home town. Please come to Iwamura town and stay our house. Iwamura is south area of Ena city,Gifu prefecture, surrounded by beautiful mountains and green feelds.
Iwamura is an old castle town. The groups of traditional buildings and streets have been preserved as important historical district. And we can study about old Japanese life style at old marchants' houses where opened for visitors. At the top of the mountain above this town, there are "The Iwamura castle ruins".
"The Tono ranch" is our special recommendation. From the top of the hill in the ranch, we can see 360-degree views, lake and mountains, farm villages, they are very beautiful through all seasons.
