Ichiju Issai no Yado Chabu Dining offers a unique experience in a quaint farmhouse that has stood for over 100 years. Guests can enjoy a delicious dinner and breakfast made from fresh, organic ingredients grown on the premises, accompanied by homemade miso. For those who prefer a vegetarian or vegan diet, the ichiju issai cooking style is also available. Relax in the serene outdoor bathtub and take in the stunning views of the surrounding rice fields, chestnut trees, and persimmon trees. Additionally, guests have the opportunity to witness or participate in traditional Japanese farming practices. Local tours are also available for an additional fee. The owners speak Japanese, English, and Spanish and have embraced a simpler, slower lifestyle that guests will surely appreciate.
