# KEY FEATURES
- Mining for gold
I have done a lot of traveling before making this guesthouse. I always wanted to visit somewhere new and all that feeling I put it into making "Matekita"
I have named the guest house "Matekitai" which means to "want to do it again." My hope is that when you come stay here you would love it so much that you would want stay again...and again...and again...
A cute newcomer to our staff joined us last November. A goat named "Trevi". With cunning bangs, he is a very popular person with our guests.
The room where you will stay is on a Japanese tatami mat.
