◎About this accommodation
With the idea of contributing to the revitalization of my hometown, Ebino City, the owner started this homestay business to create a communal place based on my past experiences.
In this old-fashioned house, you can enjoy the warmth of a family and the convenience of modern life both.
An old house café named “café de arts rukkora” is located in the renewed quaint house as well.
The café serves seasonal dishes made from herbs that are healthy for the body. And the art exhibition will bring visual enjoyment to you too!
You are welcome to visit the café as well as stay overnight.
