.A environmentally friendly wooden house with kitchen and bathroom(shower and bathtub) at the edge of small mountain village. Beautiful creeks and nice treks nearby. Best place for those who love nature and who want to spend quiet time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The space
1- Guests stay in a small detached house that stands right by host family's house. There is one single bed, one thick mattress and several sets of Futons( Japanese rather thick blankets and beddings).

2- IMPORTANT: Please pay extra fee for heating (actual cost of fuel that you use) during winter time ; it's very cold here and you will likely be using stove all through the day. We have a kerosene stove and an electric carpet; when you use up the fuel for the kerosene stove, the fuel charge is 700 JPY. Still it won't be like a central-heated house, so please wear warm clothes even inside.

3- IMPORTANT-Our place is located in a remote, depopulated mountain village where there is no commercial facility ; it takes 35 minutes by car to go to the nearest town of Kutsuki Ichiba, where grocery stores, gas stations, a bank and small eating places are available.

4- It takes about 90 minutes by car to get here from the central Kyoto city.

5- IMPORTANT- There are only 4 services of community bus that leaves from the above-
mentioned town (Kutsuki Ichiba) to come to this village area in one day.

6- You can use the kitchen in the guest house to cook for yourself.
We can also cook simple vegetarian food for you by request ; please let us know
beforehand ; we may not be able to do that due to circumstances.
Extra fee will be charged ; lunch 1000 yen /dinner 1500 yen.
Breakfast is not available.

Guest access
You can walk around in the garden and /or relax at a gazebo whenever you feel like but please do not enter the host family's house without permission.

Other things to note
1-IMPORTANT Since there is no eating places or grocery stores nearby, you are
suggested to bring foods with you and cook by yourself in the kitchen in the guest
house.
Or, we can cook meals for you by request ; it will basically be vegetarian home-
cooking meals (extra charges needed). Please let us know beforehand because we
might not be able to do that due to circumstances.

2-IMPORTANT Located in the middle of mountains, there are many bugs and insects of
many kinds around the guest house from early summer to fall. Especially in autumn
season, there can be seen many stink bugs and they try to come inside to pass the
winter there ; they normally hide in cracks or between things but when the
temperature goes up, they come out. As long as you don't bother them, they are no
harm but they still can be annoying.

3-IMPORTANT When you use the kerosene stove in the cold season, please pay for the
actual cost of fuel that you use. It will cost you about 700 yen for one day if you use
the stove all day.

Location

高島市, 滋賀県, Japan

This is an old, small mountain village with traditional Japanese farm houses with thatched roof. There is an ancient mountain path nearby that was used to carry things back and forth from Japan sea coast to Kyoto. There are more nice treks running in primeval beech forests and beautiful creeks nearby.
