This is a whole property combining a restored traditional Japanese house with a renovated modern Japanese home. Get the best of both worlds.

The property offers 5-Bedrooms (based on 2-pax/Room)

Both sides each offer complete shower/baths kitchens and laundry.

The traditional side offers tatami mat with futons while the modern side offers western style bedding.

The property offers beautiful Japanese style gardens, a traditional tea ceremony room and an outdoor sun-deck/porch.

The space
Kurashiki DEN is comprised of two restored adjoined houses; an older, historic side that is traditionally decorated and a newer contemporary modern house that is decorated accordingly.

This listing is for the entire property and you will have access to all areas on the traditional side as well as the modern side.
We feel this will offer the best of both worlds as your group can experience both; the more traditional style of living still common today as well as the newer more modern style of Japanese living.

We are unique in Kurashiki because we are one of very few entire house rentals you will find in the Bikan Historic District. This space is ideally suited for families and small groups.

Kurashiki DEN is centrally located just a several minute walk from Kurashiki train station and located at the entrance of the Bikan Historical District allowing our guests an immersive Japanese experience.

The house is available for families or groups and ideal as a base for travel to the many surrounding cities and the nearby islands. Why not consider a longer stay and receive discounts on the daily rate.

My home town is about 30 min from Kurashiki. Being an artist, I have always loved Kurashiki because it is a place of very artistic people and rich history.

When my husband and I had the chance to buy this house, we thought it was a once in a lifetime chance. It was in poor condition and was in danger of being replaced with an apartment building.

We are lucky to have friends who specialize in historic restorations of houses like ours and even luckier that they were willing to help us restore this old house.

I am so happy to be a part of Kurashiki and be able to share a slice of historic Kurashiki and Japan to everyone who visits.

I hope you can have the same feelings when walking through the streets of the Bikan Area and imagine life as it was long ago.

Here in Kurashiki, you can visit Japans 1st museum, visit ancient shrines and temples, visit the parks and sit under cherry blossom trees in full bloom and experience Japanese cuisine at its finest.

We love traveling and have been to many destinations in Asia and Europe. We are always looking for a place like Kurashiki DEN. Where we can really get a true feeling for the places we’re visiting.

We look forward to your stay.
