Our home

Our home is nestled in the forests of Seto in a national park next to an ancient temple. It was lovingly made from giant miso barrels from the edo period, local culled lumber hand made windows and doors. It has been featured in a number of books for unique nature homes. It is a hybrid treehouse with heated floors, fireplace and all the comforts of loving home and more.

Our two story home was built with nature in mind and has a 5 meter wide window to the stars in the roof and a tree growing up through the middle of our home. There is also an cabin that serves as our office just a few steps from the main home.

A short stroll and you are surrounded by rice paddies small gardens and friendly smiles. Our village has no convience stores, gas stations or shopping. Our tiny little station has trains every 15 minutes that you to the rest of Japan. 34 minutes south and you are in the Heart of Nagoya the 3rd largest city in Japan. Our broadband will connect you to the world through internet

A Short 10 min. drive to the west and you are in Seto. Seto is the home of setomono(pottery) in Japanese. It is true to its name a mecca for pottery artists and craftpersons.

Another 15 min. drive east and you are in the bed town of Kasugai and deptment stores and shopping malls, gas stations and chain stores. (Starbucks and Mcdonalds to name a few)


We love and are loved by our villagers and are sure you will be too.
