Enter the house of a 20th generation local lord and enjoy privileged Japanese life.
Staying at our renovated 400 years old property will allow you to get a good night’s rest in comfortable tatamis rooms, meditate in our Japanese garden, explore the ancient city, and access tailored Nara suggestions that you can't find online. This house features soothing nature views, upscale furniture, art and works of a famous Nara "ittobori" wood carver. All this just 10 minutes by bus from Nara center!

The space
The 85㎡ spacious guest apartment you will be settling in is fully equipped and suitable for long and short stays. It is facing a beautiful Japanese garden and forest garden on one side and the inside courtyard with Japanese traditional roofs on the other side. Your private tea room showcases some impressive traditional art pieces from a registered national living treasure of Japan. Other facilities include a separate shower, toilet, kitchen and office/living room with very high speed internet. Located on the entire second floor, the apartment is part of the main house so you'll use the guests front entrance. The owner usually uses another entrance on the other side of the property.

Jerome is an enthusiastic French guy that fell in love with his lovely wife while traveling abroad. After they got married, they settled down on this impressive property in 2016, a unique space in which the family has been living for centuries. They renovated the venue and created a sustainable food forest around it. You will find Jerome most of the days working at their edible food forest near the property. If you’re interested in spending mindful time in nature or trying hands-on gardening activities then Jerome would welcome you to accompany him so check out the Airbnb experiences he's offering.

Guest access
The second floor will be only for you exclusively, you can also access the Japanese garden in the front.

Other things to note
We produce our own organic veggies around the house. If you are interested in tasting our tasty, slow growing, vitamins and minerals packed green treasures, a vegetable and herbs basket can be arranged for you. Since appetites and availability vary, we usually go pick the contents together and we settle a price on a donation basis.

We also have two bicycle available for rent on a donation base. The bikes are shared with the family so please let us know in advance if you plan on using them.

Location

Nara, Japan

The house is almost surrounded by our food forest while being just 10min by bus from the deer park. Very easy to access from Nara station. There is a 24hours open supermarket and other good price shops around here. It is also just beside the village shrine ⛩, a very special location indeed. This part of town has been "feeding" Nara for centuries and there are numerous rice fields starting just a few houses away from us. The sunset seen from the rice field is also wonderful.

Sustainable eco-farm World biodiversity improver Permaculture educator Nara, Japan Well traveled (over 45+ countries) with an international mind Fun, erudite, spiritual but non dogmatic. I decided to make my life in Japan 3 years ago and live in Nara with my wife and family. I'm a Eden gardener & I try to heal mother Gaïa. I am very aware of the upcoming collapse of techno-industrial gasoline fulled civilization and the 6th extinction... but being awake doesn't break my spirit. I try to build my community resilience, one tree at the time, one new organic farmer at the time, sharing best practices. My current project is to make Nara city a transition town, independent in food through community supported organic agriculture. I'm starting with a model food forest in my backyard. Wish me good luck and help us if you can! You have KarmaToo Besides that, I am an endless reservoir of happiness and wit. YES! Life is just one time, got to love & enjoy it!
