A Touch of Zen offers a rare chance to stay in the century-old former home of a Japanese military officer, which has recently been renovated and turned into a Guest House. The Tatami Room is one of several rooms we have available, each with its own style. Here you can sleep on a tatami mat with a pillow and light quilt in the same way the original occupants would have slept when the house was built. You have one extra benefit that they did not have the opportunity to enjoy: air conditioning.

The space
There is a guest living/dining room and access to a common kitchen as well as access to the living room in the main house at certain hours each day.

Where you’ll be

Zuoying District, Kaohsiung City, Taiwan

This neighborhood was once a housing compound for high ranking Japanese military officers, and many of the homes date from that period and share a similar old world charm. We are walking distance from some of the best local restaurants in Kaohsiung, as well as picturesque alleys that still retain the feel of what Taiwan was like 40-50 years ago. Also nearby is the Lotus Pond, with its picturesque Dragon and Tiger Pavilions and the Confucius Temple. Just around the corner from us is the 886 Military Villages Museum, and just a few blocks beyond that is the Navy Golf course (one of Taiwan's oldest and most admired golf courses) and the ROC Naval History Museum. Other Kaohsiung sights are just a bus ride away.

I am a Taiwan-born American, I like shooting things (with a camera) and writing various types of fiction. I make my living as a videographer flying all over Asia shooting for different clients. Even after nearly 20 years of traveling frequently for work I still love to travel, and I share that love with all who visit. My wife, Wendy, manages our guesthouse, a historic home built nearly a century ago by Japanese colonists, and personally restored by us as a labor of love.

During your stay

We (hosts Carl and Wendy) like to make ourselves available to chat with guests when our schedules allow. We are somewhat busy people, but we live on the property and each day we should have some downtime at home that we are happy to spend with guests. We like to screen old movies on the giant projection wall in the living room in the main house, and Carl mixes a mean cocktail and makes some fine home-made ice cream.
