Our stay here was wonderful! The house is so beautiful and thoughtfully crafted. It's even better than the pictures! The futon on tatami mats sleeping arrangement was extremely comfortable. We had a really relaxing time! We rode bikes into the town, enjoyed getting to know Taeka and Toshi (Yuka's parents) they were such wonderful hosts :) Very down to earth people. We feel like we got to experience a slice of the real Japan here. I only wish we could have stayed for longer! 3 nights wasn't enough. My husband and I would love to return to Tsuyama and stay here again one day! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

This place was so great that we waanted to stay longer! The weather wasn't so great for sightseeing , but it didn't matter because the house was so confortable and beautiful that we just relaxed and had a great time. Yuka and her family were great and very kind. Was so happy to meet them! Better go by car to enjoy the area. We hope to comeback someday again!

It is a wonderful place. The accomodation was the best we had during our trip in Japan. 1) The house itself is amazing. Very comfortable, beautiful interior, stylish and spacious. There is no airco but remarkably that is not necessarily, because it is very well ventilated. And we were there in the midst of a very hot and humid summer. 2) The surroundings are scenic. This is rural Japan which is not so easy to find when you are on vacation. You can make nice walks and even bicycle trips. Ok, it is off the beaten track, but worth the effort even if you are travelling by train. 3) Taeka and her husband (who are the. parents of Yuka. and who live next to the house) are very nice people and will assist you with everything you need.

With so many 5 star reviews...what can I add with one more? The house is exactly as advertised - a beautiful countryside villa in a peaceful location. This happened to be just what we were looking for on paper - and the reality was just what we hoped. The house and its artwork is beautiful, the countryside is lovely, friendly and very easy to get around. We had a car and GPS which allowed for several day trip explorations, and is recommended. Overall, a wonderful trip! We'd love to go back and see the differences in the seasons as there was so much yet to see - 1 week just wasn't enough. Lastly, Yuka and her family were wonderful hosts and a pleasure to stay with.
