They are currently based in Kurohime, Nagano Prefecture, Japan.

Hitsujigusa themselves also “make all their own things” while developing in the forest around them. They continue to build a house using the wood, soil and stones of the surrounding lush countryside, which can sometimes be beautiful, and sometimes be unsparingly cruel.
