My Shuraku Nakatsugawa opened in March 2021 in collaboration with Fulford Enterprises. This shop offers the best of Nakatsugawa, a community of 250 people in the mountains of Yamagata.
If you live in Japan, come here to order great ingredients straight from their natural source in the fertile fields and forests of Japan's northeast. We hope that people all over the world will also enjoy coming here to learn about what the community has to offer.
As the seasons change, so will the product lineup and local information. We will also showcase experiences of interest in Nakatsugawa.
My Shuraku Nakatsugawa is made possible by the people of Nakatsugawa, and in particular by the members of Nakatsugawa’s Future Committee in collaboration with karisonmin (community intern) Priya.
At least 200 yen from each purchase supports the Future Committee's efforts.
You can read more about the Future Committee and the karisonmin concept here.
Nakatsugawa enjoys a beautiful natural setting amid rivers, forests, and mountains on the way to sacred Mt. Iide, which has long played an important role in the spiritual life of the community. Outstanding scenery, friendly people, and seven farmhouse B&Bs are among the factors making Nakatsugawa a great place to visit at any time of year.

My Shuraku Nakatsugawa is part of the Shuraku Cloud initiative that is being undertaken by Fulford Enterprises, Ltd. Our aim is to link communities around Japan, and around the world, so that they can enjoy being part of a global community while enjoying the benefits of country life. What lessons will city dwellers learn from Shuraku Cloud on the path ahead? We look forward to learning.
