Just an hour's journey from Tokyo, this beautifully restored Japanese farmhouse is nestled in the heart of the Japanese countryside, surrounded by rice paddies, shrines, parks and golf courses. With its own natural swimming pool, indoor and outdoor kitchens, open bath, gym, sauna and treehouse, you can experience a traditional Japanese setting in unparalleled luxury, whether as a family looking to enjoy time together or travellers wanting to try something special during their time in Japan.

The space

The house and garden are setup for people to relax and enjoy the amenities in a peaceful and beautiful setting. There are plenty of places in the house and garden to while away the hours leafing through some of the extensive book collection or just sitting and enjoying the sounds of nature.

The house has two western-style bedrooms and three traditional Japanese tatami rooms, so guests can make up their own minds about how they want to sleep. The second upstairs bedroom is perfect for children, with an attached play room full of toys and games. Downstairs the main house is furnished in traditional Japanese style, with tatami rooms, irori, and sunken dining room that can seat 10 comfortably. The kitchen is fully equipped to manage large family dinners and has a large island kitchen that tends to be the place where people congregate during daylight hours.

The gym overlooks the pool and Japanese stone garden and has an adjoining sauna and shower room. The outdoor kitchen has gas barbecue, fridge, sink and prep area as well as additional sofa seating and picnic tables to host alfresco meals. The natural swimming pool, with its clear, chemical-free water is wonderful throughout the summer months.

Truly wonderful experience! We are a family of four from the UK. Our summer holiday this year to Japan has been a big adventure but our stay at Carl and Tommy's place has definitely been a highlight. This place is incredible and lets you experience a traditional Japanese farmhouse in the height of luxury. This is not what you think of when you hear farmhouse in the UK! The gardens, the pool, the gym are all first class. The house itself is fully modernised, clean, very spacious and just fun! We were a bit hesitant about the commute from Tokyo (first time on Japanese roads) but it was actually easy to drive and to find the house with (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps. Carl and Tommy were a pleasure to deal with and kept us updated and responded to our many texts asking "whats this?!". We didnt want to leave tbh and will definitely be back.

本当に立派で素敵な邸宅でした! 「田舎で居心地のよい日本家屋にステイしてみたい」という家族の希望で今回利用させていただきましたが、全てが想像以上に素晴らしく、忘れられない滞在となりました。 今回は車で東京から向かったのですが、思ったより近く1時間ちょっとで到着。着いてまず驚いたのは入口の門です。黒澤映画のセットに出てくるような、歴史と趣のある門が私たちを出迎えてくれました。門をくぐると綺麗に手入れされた芝生と和風庭園が広がり、5歳と7歳の子どもたちはすぐに裸足になって芝生の上を駆け回っていました。古民家の良さを残しつつも綺麗にリノベーションされた日本家屋は、設備が最高に素晴らしいものでした。立派なオーブンも兼ね備えた新しいキッチン、お酒の飲めるカウンター、ヒノキの良い香りのする浴室、骨董品が美しいアクセントとなっている広々とした和室、全てにホストのこだわりと心遣いが感じられました。キッチンの脇には掘りごたつの大きなテーブルがあり、正座が苦手な私には非常にありがたく、ゆったり食事をしたりお酒を楽しむことができました。ダイニング脇には書棚があり、洋書が揃っていて読書も楽しめました。 夜は庭でBBQをしたのですが、庭に設置されたBBQ設備は非常にクォリティが高く、蓋つきのBBQコンロで焼いた肉が程よく柔らかく焼けて、今まで食べたBBQで最高の出来でした。BBQ設備には屋外用冷蔵庫もついていて、飲み物を冷やしておけるのでとても便利でした。 敷地内にはプールがあり、池の中にプールがあるような趣のある造りでした。おそらくホストが日本庭園の雰囲気をこわさないように配慮して造ったのでしょう。一軒家の敷地内にプールがあるなんて夢のようでした。ホストから伺った話では、水質を保つために特別なナチュラルエコシステムを使ってるらしく、ケミカルなものは使用してないとのことでした。こどもたちは日本庭園風プールで何時間も飽きずに遊んでました。 敷地内にもう一つ施設があり、その設備の素晴らしさに驚いたのがトレーニングジムです。ヨガやトレーニング機器はもちろんのこと、サウナ室まで利用することができました! こどもたちもいろいろ遊び場があることに大喜びで、二階にある秘密部屋のようなプレイルームや、敷地内にあるツリーハウスなど、日が暮れるまであちこちで遊び回りました。 邸宅から車で20分くらいのところにゴルフコースがあり、滞在中はショートコース(9holes,par3)も楽しみ、盛りだくさんの一泊二日でした。 ホストのお二人はとてもフレンドリーでご家族であたたかく迎えてくださり、わからないこともいろいろ教えて下さいました。ホテルステイとは違う、家族や友人同士でワイワイ楽しい滞在をしたい方にぜひオススメです。私たちもまた家族で伺います。カールさん、ともこさん、ありがとうごさいました!
