Our Minshuku (Japanese Inn) has been serving guests for over 40 years! We have traditional tatami rooms that overlook Kumihama Bay and are across the street from the beach. Steps away from hiking, biking, fishing, etc. Perfect for day trips to Kinosaki Onsen, Amanohashidate and Ine town. Come enjoy Japanese nature!
Our neighborhood is filled with fishermen and farmers and they are all friendly! You will have a very unique experience here - chances are you will be the only non-Japanese person for miles! The children of the neighborhood will say 'hello!' and everyone will want to make sure you have a great stay. In the summer, the beach is packed with beachgoers from the city and in the winter crab season we have many visitors in town for our seafood. Come in the Spring or Fall and you'll have the place to yourself!
We are located in the countryside of Japan - having a car is the best way to get around. If you don't have a car, I can pick you up from the train station (either Kumihama or Toyooka) and you can use bikes to get around. I usually have a spare bicycle or two and you can rent them from Kumihama station for 400 yen (less that $4USD). If you are renting a car remember that Japan requires you to have an international driver's license!
Hello! I am the owner of a minshuku (Japanese Inn) in Kumihama, one of the most beautiful places in the world! I have been hosting Japanese guests for over 40 years and look forward to opening my home to people from around the world.
Our area is famous for its seafood and I have my own oyster farm. It doesn't get any fresher!
There is not a kitcen in the rooms for the guests but you can share our kitchen if you want to use!
I look forward to hosting - please feel free to ask any questions. Welcome!
