  • Description

    Description

    ** Sorry, we are not taking volunteers at the moment.

    We are a Japanese / English family of five who returned to Japan to run a traditional guesthouse for a year and set up projects and residentials around food, sustainability, music and theatre. We decided to stay on for another year and are setting up a programme of events.

    We live in a traditional kayabuki (thatched house) which is very typical of the area.

    Our house is located in Kanbayashi on the outskirts of Ayabe city, it is a very rural area in the mountains. Kanbayashi is known for viewing fireflies in June.

    Near the house there are walks up the mountain and to the site of a castle (no longer there unfortunately). There is also an onsen nearby with a rotenboro (outdoor bath) with lovely views over the mountains, which is about 30-40 mins walk away.
