Where you’ll be

Mimasaka-shi, Okayama-ken, Japan

Old Higashiawakura Village (which is now part of Mimasaka city) is well known for its catch phrase as “Ai-no-Mura” literally meaning “Village of Love” and is surrounded by sacred mountains where monks practiced in ancient time. Ushiro-yama, the mountain surrounding the village is the highest mountain in Okayama prefecture, and is one of the holy and spiritual mountains in Japan. “Ai-no-Mizu” (literally meaning “Water of Love”), the natural spring water from this area is loved by many, and people from other cities drive hours for this water.

Our neighborhood is very quiet and surrounded by rice paddies and mountains. You can enjoy the day time relaxing in the cozy house or have a nice walk and interact with locals, and enjoy the starry night sky. Please come and experience the real Japanese village life, see a different part of Japan and discover what you wouldn’t find in guide-books, online, or all those “already-discovered” tourist areas.

There are four onsens(hot spring bath) within a 15-minutes car drive distance, and the birth place of one of the most famous samurai, Musashi Miyamoto is only a 10-minutes drive away.
