About NAKAYA

Once upon a time, there lived vassals of a famous war lord in Tsugane village where Nakaya is located in. In the late Edo period,  Nakaya  had been watching over a life of a peasant’s family. Then time passed, now the house is welcoming guests with  tranquil and warmth gaze. You will find its historical atmosphere through out your stay at Nakaya.  If you enjoy photography, photos you take at Nakaya are going to be your most precious ones.

Nakaya is a farmhouse, NOT a hotel, a hostel and a ryokan which you could often see in hot springs areas.

What it feels to stay at Japanese farmhouse

We welcome only one or two groups per night. Feel at home in Nakaya and experience Omotenashi(Japanese cordial welcoming) at first hand. You can try daytime activities at your own pace. In the evening, it’s good to gather around the irori and chat with your friends and our staff, or enjoy a peaceful night.

Ken san, the owner of NAKAYA, will help your stay at Nakaya. He speaks limited English, however, will try to do his best to communicate with you. We see this as a chance to interact from heart to heart.

breakfast

Food

Have a try of our traditional cuisine, with fresh ingredients such as organic vegetables grown in our garden, seasonal fish, and meat prepared on the charcoal fire at the irori. Irori fire softens the foods, makes it juicier and brings out its natural aroma. Just enjoy their rich yet simple taste with a small amount of condiment.
