House Rules

Please be respectful and be aware the house is used as a normal residential house usually.

Please clean up after yourself (any use of kitchen or food in guest rooms), provided supplies used such as towels are to be placed in the washing machine after use.

Please keep the volume down after 10:30pm.

No pets allowed unless permission is given first, please ask! Smoking is not allowed inside the house, but OK outside. Alcohol is allowed.

Eating in the guest rooms is allowed, but please be careful to prevent crumbs / liquids falling on the tatami mats, as they are difficult to clean. Guest rooms should have tables available for this. You can eat in the dining room of course too.

Please keep any children (and adults!) under control (no running/ball games) as Japanese houses are built to be lightweight (due to earthquakes) so balls and people can go through the walls/doors easily!

Unparalleled experience! even for Japan natives like us!) Sleeping in the spacious Tatami room which is designed for tea ceremony for large group with authentic Japanese decor was beyond imagination for our daughters. They loved the feeling of traditional Japan. Tea ceremony provided by master of Edo Senke was also a breath taking experience, our daughters learned that every move the host and guest of tea ceremony makes are sensitive communication which exchange more things than vocal communication. Every minutes staying at this place has some meanings. Highly recommended, both Japan natives and non-natives especially those who with interest in tradition of tea ceremony.

The tea ceremony was an amazing experience! What bother us is that there are only a few toilets and one bathroom, so it was kind of crowded.

Its a grand experience. I traveled solo without much plans but Sumio San helped me plan the trip, suggested places I should definitely visit, even went out of his way to find each bus route and write down the timings to plan my trip. He is really warm and welcoming. The stay was wonderful.

I had an Amazing stay Here again. This was my third stay at the house. I would strongly recommend it to anyone visiting Sendai. Beautiful house in a good peaceful location not to far away from the city. The host Sumio is very kind and helpful. The tea ceremony is an amazing welcome to the house. I enjoyed my stay so much, I decided to extend my stay here. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.
