And also a huge garden.
You can feel it is your house.
UJITEI has many artworks Toshi who is an owner makes.

The wall is made by plaster.
All materials are well thought out.
Because we made UJITEI for our family house.
So you can make your time in a cozy room.

If you have a busy time all day, it is difficult to talk to your family, friends, and lover.
But this is far from your busy life.
It is surrounded by beautiful nature and arts.

But when guests stay here, the room is totally changed.
Because every guest changes the placing table and sofa etc.
They make own space to fit their life.

【Travel as if you move to another town.】
In urban, there are many people and traveler.

If you can not speak Japanese, don’t worry.
Everybody already understands you stay in UJITEI.

So, if you get a lost by bicycle, it is no problem.
Someone asks you what happen and call to us or take you to UJITEI.
Or when you walk, a farmer may give fresh food.
You will be a part of our town.

We had a guest before.
In the hot summer, she went to a grocery store and bought a farm hat.
And she asked what is a good place in Kamo.
He explained and also brought a bike with sidecar.
Then he took the best place in Kamo with it!!
I can not promise you can do same experience with it.
But you can make friends here and enjoy communication.

We welcome you.
You can live as if you move to another town.
You get up the morning with morning sunshine.
And you run while feeling the smell of the mountain.
You can talk with neighbors in the supermarket.
We don’t have special sightseeing, but you can experience real life.

【Drink tea together】
Next to the UJITEI, It has another house which Toshi and Taeka live.
It is just 20steps.
Why it has two houses on the same ground in the countryside?
We make rice and vegetables or cut grasses outside.
And we drink tea when we brake.
If you are not busy, we invite you to drink tea together outside.
When we drink tea outside, neighbors come to drink together.
They also work outside and want to brake.
You can ask our life, our rice culture. Or a problem in the countryside or how to buy the house, Shiba(!?)
We love to talk and know other culture.
Then we work again outside. If you are interested in farm work, you can join!

When we start vacation house, Taeka could not speak English well.
But she wanted to ask and talk with guests, She starts to go to English lesson after she is 60 years old!
So please talk with her:-)
