"Iwanuma Sheep Village" is home to about 30 grazing sheep at a sheep ranch created with local residents in the disaster-stricken coastal area of Iwanuma City. Around the sheep ranch, we maintain farms, a dog run park (separate charge) and an open space. We aim to be a place that connects "people with people," "people to resources," and "past memories with the future," just like spinning wool is knitted together into one item from various parts.

On Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, we hold fun events such as "Sheep Village City". Various stores are set up, stage performances and announcements are made, breakfast and snacks are prepared for the sheep, and the popular sheep race is held. Please come and visit us! (*Schedule may change due to weather, natural disasters, or the situation regarding COVID-19).
