Temari is opened as invigorating local community in April 2019. Our first step to open Temari was in 2016. Students suggested the way of boosting the community by using an old house. Then locals discussed how to use it for a year. In 2018, a young girl who wanted to open a hostel joined the team and made an organization to manage Temari.
Our motto is “ Making our community by ourselves”. We rented public money to renovate the house. We will management for hostel and café with locals.


Every Thursday from 10:00 to 15:00, a vegetable market is held at the edge of the market. The market is a lively place for local residents to talk and relax with freshly picked vegetables from Nanbu-cho and processed products made by the business.
