The Matagi Experience

 Have you ever heard of Matagi?  If you have, you may picture bear hunters walking the mountains of Akita.  However, Matagi is so much more; it means living in harmony with the surrounding nature and includes the way of thinking and outlook that comes with the lifestyle.  Matagi have changed with the times and while the days of wearing bear pelts and straw hats are long, many of their traditions remain
   You can learn all about this wonderful culture from active modern day Matagi as they guide you around the mountains and forests.  The Matagi experience includes a variety of courses designed to suite the needs of all participants.
