Farmhouse accommodation, NAKAYA
Leave your bags on tatami mats as you enter the farmhouse. Sip a cup of refreshing green tea while sitting on engawa and feel that cool breeze coming from the paddy fields.
Let’s escape from your routine and immerse yourself in the Japanese ‘good old days’.
Autumn in Nakaya
Everything you need to know about the events this autumn.
Nakaya was a farmer’s house in the late Edo period. It still has a working fireplace, an irori, which you can use to cook fish, vegetables, and other dishes. It’s used to keep the house warm during the winter. Furthermore, we still maintain some traditional tools. If you enjoy photography, photos you take at Nakaya are going to be your most precious ones.
Home stay style
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 in Nakaya at your own pace. Sipping sake (Japanese rice wine) is also recommended, gather around the irori at night and chat to your company and our members of staff or enjoy the quiet and peace.
You can wear samurai armor and know what it feels like to hold a sword. If you prefer to a less active experience, you can take a relaxing walk in the nearby bamboo grove and learn to make your own bamboo cup. Moreover, you can try a lesson in Japanese calligraphy and holding a tea ceremony. If you’re interested in our cuisine, we can also teach you how to make soba(buckwheat noodles) which you can then try afterward.
Nakaya is located in Hakushu region where is famous for its clear water. Pay a visit to a 300-year-old sake brewery and enjoy their sake. Besides that, explore a mysterious temple that contains 100 Buddha statues. After that, enjoy cycling down the slope from the temple towards Nakaya, as you pass through the rice fields.
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.
Nakaya is located in the center of mainland Japan, close to Mt. Fuji. You can reach us in only around two hours by highway bus from Shinjuku, Tokyo. Also, Nakaya is a great place to change your pace during your trip between Osaka and Tokyo.
