About "Tousaku Juku" Guesthouse

Surrounded by deep green mountains and forests, it is an agricultural area of rice paddies and tea fields fed by the clear waters of the Miya River and Osanai River.
The town is surrounded by lush mountains and forests and has an agricultural area of rice paddies and tea plantations fed by the clear waters of the Miyagawa and Osanai Rivers, and a fishing area facing the gentle waves of the Kumano Sea.
The "Minpaku Tosaku Juku" that we operate is based on the memory of a great man who will be remembered as the father of compulsory education and local government.
The house was renovated from the birthplace of Mr. Tosaku Ose, a great man who left his name to posterity as the father of compulsory education and local government.
The house is more than 130 years old and was renovated from the birthplace of Mr. Tousaku Ose, a great man who went from being a substitute teacher to a village mayor at the young age of 34.
In response to the local people's desire to continue to pass on Ose's ideas to the next generation, we have revitalized this facility as a new place for an exchange called "minpaku".
The house is rented out as a single building with a large garden.
The Meiji-era design is nostalgic, and the contrast of light and shadow is a reminder of the beauty of the times.
Even though it is an old house, the essential water facilities are designed for modern life.
