Ishikawauchi offers accommodation to adult and student guests (1 night 2 meals included).
We accept reservations for parties of 6 people or more (※minimum 6 people).
Please contact us regarding child rate.
In March 2012, we closed Ishikawauchi elementary school, after 125 years of service. But after some renovation work we reopened it 2 years later in July 2014 as a lodging facility.
There are 4 tennis courts on the premises and you can practice soccer and rubgy at Nakabae Green Park, a nearby sports field.
There is also a restaurant inside the former school.
Reservations are required (minimum 4 people) at least 3 days in advance.
Menu: Ishikawauchi set meal (prepared with local produce) + coffee or tea = ¥1,200 (tax included).
We are looking forward to meeting you!
