Shibumichi was built by the owner of a traditional inn located deep in the mountains so that his children could attend school in the village. Impressive and sturdy, the farmhouse was clearly intended to be home for a big family.

A traditional irori hearth occupies the center of the first floor, inviting guests to gather around it like Japanese families of old.

The second floor is now a comfortable bedroom from which you can overlook the garden and the dining room downstairs.

In the case of parties of more than two guests, the tatami rooms on the first floor will be prepared as guestrooms by laying out futons.

What used to be the uma-ya (in-house stables) is now a spacious living and dining area with high ceilings and a rustic touch.

The kitchen area is equipped with all the necessary appliances and utensils. It manages to be modern while retaining its original charm.

The objects adorning the farmhouses are all antique pieces donated by the previous owners and other locals from the area.
