Shared Living Room
Floored with tatami mats, the living room will make you want to lie down and relax.
This room is for all guests to be used freely.
Here you will find free drinks, a shared refrigerator, microwave, toaster, and an electric kettle.
Enjoy some reading, chat with your fellow guests, or simply take it easy.
Old Japanese homes like our guesthouse have low ceilings. While this creates a cozy atmosphere, taller guests may need to watch their heads!
Engawa and Japanese-style Garden
The engawa (garden-side veranda) overlooks the Japanese-style garden.
We consider this the best seat in the house, a sunny place where you can relax and enjoy the season.
There's a mini-library here, so you can read a book while lounging by the garden.
Why not treat yourself to an "engawa café" with a free drink?
At night, all you need to do is look up at the sky filled with stars.
Relax and be lazy, indulge yourself.
Shower, Toilets, and Washbasins
There are two washbasins, two bidet toilets, and one shower stall.
In one room, there’s a toilet and a washbasin. In the adjoining room, there’s a shower stall, toilet, and a washbasin. Therefore, even if one guest is using the shower, another guest can still access both a toilet and a washbasin. Also, because we have installed our washbasins a bit higher at a universal design height, we have provided a footstool for smaller children.
We have provided shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and cotton swabs.
The hair dryer can be used in the make-up corner outside of the shower room.
These are shared facilities so please be considerate of the other guests.
Free Wi-fi Connection

Drinks include: Coffee, Cafe Latte, and seasonal Japanese tea. Please help yourself.

Rental Tote Bag
Have you ever thought that you were sick and tired about the "big bag" during your trip, but just wanted to take a wallet or mobile phone when you
went out from your accommodation?
Let us take a load off your back!
There is a “mini” rental tote bag, which you will find located in your room.
Feel free to take it with you when you go out for a stroll, dinner, or shopping during your stay with us.
It also makes a great beach bag.
