The Space

Large Tatami Room in an old house in Kamakura. Situated on top of a hill in the middle of a forest. (A little hike up the hill, but nothing good walking shoes cannot manage!) About 20-25 min walk from Kamakura Station.

The room easily fits two persons sleeping on traditional Japanese futons. Kids welcome! (2 adults + 1-2 kids OK!) Under 6 years: Free.

Kamakura is about 1 hour away from Tokyo and a lovely old Japanese city with lots of temples, great food and a very friendly vibe. The city center is best explored by feet but rental bikes (available around the city) is also a great way of getting around if you want to go to the nearby sea or visit some of the temples a little further from the station.

The house is a 40-year old Japanese house that we have been totally renovating with new bathroom, kitchen, flooring, etc.

You are free to use the kitchen and bathroom during your stay and wifi internet is also available.

We have to boys (Aged 7 and 5) so be prepared to be woken up early in the morning by them running around!

Guest Access

You can of course use the room but also feel free to relax in our living room, use our kitchen and bathroom. We have a large deck too looking out on a nearby forest perfect for morning coffee or afternoon drinks.

Please notice we don't have any WI-FI or TV in the house.
