This cabin (shared style) is more or less 100 years old. It's a CAMPING style. Very different from Hostel. Hotel, neither. Please bring you own daily products. If you love old stuff, antiques... ,this is the place. You can experience the old rural life style in urban city. We'd like you to experience something different from your routine and something precious you can not do in your country. We have a guitar, an organ, a ukulele and so on. While you are at this place, you feel something spiritual through music, its atomsphere, and its moment.
Do not miss the chance to experience all this! (Party animals do not belong here.)

Restaurants, Supermarket, Drug store, Convrnience store, Liquar shop and Karaoke are not far from Chian. They are close enough to walk to (1 min~15 min).

How to use the old cabin "Chian":
You can use this cabin as a private cabin. But My staff or I have the right to go inside anytime during your stay.

We do not have beds and sofa(couch). You sleep with a sleeping bag on Tatami.

If you need Wifi, let me know. I can bring my pocket wifi and use it for a short time.

On your way back to Chian at night especially after 21:00 as we are located in a very very quite area, please do not make loud noise.. It is prohibited to bring strangers(person with no booking) to Chian. Penalty is given: 10,000yen from everyone
Please fill out our booking form we'll send you after you booked or when you ckeck in. (Name, Check-in/out-date, Address, Passport number and etc.) This is for security. Please do not have any people enter into my place without asking me.
There are many rules. If you have a common sence and can respect Japanese culture, I hope I do not have to tell. Anyway all what I want to say to my guests is "Make yourself at home and be one of my family." So try to keep clean all the time as if you were home. 
I can hardly welcome these people who ..
1. smoke too much (Simply I do not like it.) or drink too much.
2. party animals (Find a hotel or a hostel in downtown. There are many there.)
3. use "Chian" as a love hotel. (Make sure this place is like a temple. If you need to do something, please also stay at a hotel or hostel.)
4. are not well organised. (I should be very organised as I am always busy. I can not be stuck just for you all the time.)
5. alway play by one's own rules.
If you do not let us know your arival time until at least one day before, check-in won't go smothly. You may need wait for us at least one hour in front of the door.
