Come and appreciate the marvelous landscape near the city of Izumo, located in the prefecture of Shimane, with its rich forests and hills full of Shinto-mysticism and wild seashores.
The majority of foreign as well as Japanese tourism is drawn to the famous Izumo-Taisha Grand shrine, one of the most ancient and important Shinto-shrines in Japan.
However, only few get a glimpse of Izumo’s surrounding historical countryside and experience the traditional way of living as of 400-200 years ago.
Spend a night in a historical Japanese farmhouse (“Kominka”, literally “old private house”) on the countryside, completely renovated by a renowned local architecture office – a true insider’s tip.
You will be cooking rice on a traditional cooking stove and heat the bath on fire.
Enjoy the simple but convenient traditional Japanese lifestyle and refresh your body and 5 senses.
Savor the evening whilst gathering around the traditional sunken fireplace (“Irori”) and eating grilled fish.
Bring your own food and cook it up the way you want.
Up to 10 people can easily relax in this house.
