"Ginmokusei" Guest House (pick up avail.)

About "Ginmokusei
 We are a four-family house, with children from elementary school to my 97-year-old mother living here. The house was rebuilt about 20 years ago, but it is still a traditional Japanese house. The house is decorated in a calm, pure Japanese style with a sense of nostalgia. You can feel the warmth and soft texture of the wood. (It was televised on the TV program "Paradise of Life" as a lodge for lumberjacks. In the early morning on a clear day, the town shines in the morning sun. The view is breathtakingly beautiful.

The restrooms are separated for men and women.
Pick-up service is available from the nearest bus stop, although reservation is required.

  [About the owner].
I am a member of the "Somagumi," a group of local lumberjacks who protect the forests of my hometown and I have been working on "forestation" through forest thinning for many years. My wife also works as a navigator of the local history and culture. My wife also works as a navigator of the local area, telling people about the history and culture of the area.
