Make yourself comfortable

Even though the area is full of famous world heritage sights, you can also choose to get relaxed by staying in the guest room with lots of sunshine or choose just to stroll a bit around the Kinomoto area. Old narrow streets will bring you back to the old days. Let's get in touch with the "real" local life.

Walking down the street to the seafront, enjoying fresh juice of oranges from backyard, shopping at local shops and cooking with the owner for a dinner or BBQ at the backyard, visiting small local Izakaya pubs for a drink, and then drifting off to sleep in traditional Tatami room with Futon mattress.
Every experience can be a special moment in your trip.
