After days of exploring the hustle and bustle of Japan’s major cities, cap off your vacation by going on a healing stay at Muji Base. Fans of Studio Ghibli films will feel like they’re on the set of My Neighbor Totoro (1988) as the old house overlooks rice fields and mountains. In fact, Kamogawa is home to Oyama Senmaida, the closest terraced rice field from Tokyo.
