British Hills is a unique destination in Fukushima Prefecture – it aims to recreate the atmosphere and charm of a traditional British village, offering visitors an immersive experience in British culture, history, and lifestyle without leaving Japan.

The venue is hosting the British Hills Market over Japan's Golden Week holiday period, which endeavors to support regional revitalization in the prefecture. The event is set to include vendors selling local Fukushima sake, sweets, and handmade items, alongside hands-on workshops that change daily and stage performances by Fukushima-based entertainers.
