Description

The Space

Our hand-crafted Main Lodge and the adjacent Guesthouse offer the serene beauty of old Japan, with all the comforts of modern life.

Both lodgings were originally built for the director of a national hospital. In honor of his long service, the director was given permission to craft these two buildings in the national forest, overlooking a remarkably pristine coastline near the mouth of Tokyo Bay. There are no adjacent homes...just incredibly lush greenery and views of blue ocean.

A setting like this in Japan, just 20 km from Kamakura and an hour from the center of the world's largest city, is truly extraordinary.

This listing focuses on the Magical Inn Guesthouse, a large Japanese-style home which offers four distinctive bedrooms on two floors. Here, you will also enjoy the use of a full kitchen, as well as a separate Japanese bath.

Inside the Guesthouse, you will find an unusually large living and dining area, flooded with sunlight. On one side is the spacious, fully equipped kitchen; on the other is the Guesthouse garden.

The master bedroom features a large Western bed, with enough additional space to set up a futon for young kids. There are two large tatami rooms available for sleeping, plus a second Western-style bedroom, all with plush futons.

The Japanese bath and shower room is augmented by two toilets, one downstairs, and one up.

With prior arrangements, the Guesthouse and its separate garden can be booked for exclusive use by your family, or a group. Ask about lower rates for long stays.

Next door at the Main Lodge, we have five sleeping rooms, each of which normally accommodates from two to six people with plush futons. You will also find a comfortable communal sitting area, and large dining table. On many Saturday and Sunday mornings, you can arrange to have a full Western breakfast -- including real drip-brewed coffee -- for 1,000 yen.

There are a few nice restaurants and bars within walking distance, and scores within easy taxi/bus range. With prior arrangements, you can order a full BBQ set-up in the garden.

Our expansive gardens regularly host parties, day and evening, with guests enjoying clear skies and stars while sitting on hand-made wooden benches around a fire.

One of the nicer beaches in the Kanto region lies 300 meters below the inn. This is not a Caribbean beach, but as the photos show, it's lovely in its own right. Miles of both rocky and sandy shore lead to a legendary windsurfing spot -- home to Japan's national champions -- just a few minutes down the road. This area is also great for paddleboards and kayaks.

Truly Tolkien forest hiking trails surround us, and will take you to the famous Kurihama botanical garden at the top of the mountain.

Most guests travel here from Tokyo, via Shinagawa Station (or Shibuya Station, transferring at Yokohama). It takes roughly 55 minutes to arrive at the local train stop, Keikyu-Kurihama Station. From there it's 5 minutes to our place via taxi, or 15 minutes via one bus and a short 200-meter stroll.

There's a small market within a five-minute walk. There are major supermarkets and drugstores about one kilometer from the inn, along the bus route, and also adjacent to the train station.

If you need even more space than the Magical Inn Guesthouse offers, the Main Lodge has three rooms suitable for singles or couples. On the first floor...

The Blue Room: eight-mat size, sleeps up to three, with a shared toilet.

The Green Room: six-mat size, sleeps two, with sink en suite and a shared toilet.

The Yellow Room: six-mat size, sleeps two, with sink and toilet en suite.

Upstairs, there are two spaces suitable for larger groups...

The Tatami Room: 10.5 mats, sleeps up to six, with shared toilets.

The Loft: 10-mat size, sleeps up to five, with shared toilets.

Your on-site hosts are the well-traveled Jude Brand, originally from Oz, and "Mr. G," a bilingual Japanese gent. We request that you reserve a week in advance, so we have time to talk with you and prepare for a perfect stay.

The Magical Inn tends to attract creative personalities from around the globe, and folks with many decades of travel experience tell us that there is no better retreat in Japan. You may not want to return to "civilization."
