Koiwai, at the base of Mr. Iwate, is one of the largest private dairy farms. Against the background of beautiful pastoral and floral scenery, the farm offers the horse riding, sheep-and-dog shows, delicious treats made with the farm's fresh milk and eggs, and the museum to learn 120 years of its history.
A lot of fans of Miyazawa Kenji, who wrote about Koiwai, flock here regularly. The farm was used as a shooting location of the 2003 Japanese Academy Award film, When the Last Sword Is Drawn. From late April to early November, 1-hour bus tour is available.

We were here on 1st of 2019 , its all covered with snow with very little activities , in the evening there are lights up ( illumination) which looks very beautiful specially the train which looks like a wedding train in the lights . We had a warm cup of fresh milk and enjoyed the evening at the most .

It is an amazing farm with lots of fun activities. The parking lot is big and free. The admission fee is reasonable. You need to pay each activity separately inside. There is no free pass. Comparing the the other similar farms it is not too big, you can walk around with your kids easily. There are restaurants (pizza, bbq, etc), shopping areas for souvenirs and fresh products like milk, yogurt, soft cream and many more. Soft cream is definitely recommended. Very tasty. Fresh milk is must try one. We couldn’t see cows since they very in a different place but we had a chance to watch a dog and sheeps show. Pony ride, craft activities, archery, mirror maze, horse car, water activities are great options. There are guided tours. Better to check the times at the entrance.

We love this place very much, they have a big playground for children and some facilities for family to spend a half day. The cow cottage is worth visiting and don't forget to buy a bottle of fresh milk and ice-cream, you will never forget the fresh taste!
