Okunoto Salt Farm Village

The Okunoto Salt Farm Village in Suzu is the only facility in Japan to use the traditional "Agehama" Technique for salt production. As the name explains, a salt field is a field for making salt, and the field is created by spreading clay on top of a bedrock, then spread sand all over it after the clay has harden. People used the same method to produce natural salt with rich minerals about 500 years ago.
