The space

Stay the night in a traditional Japanese style room.

The room that is available for stay is a Japanese style Tatami room which can lodge a maximum of 3 people.
It is complemented with an alcove, ceiling light and a sunken kotatsu, which gives the room a traditional Japanese look.
Futons will be prepared for bedding. Wi-fi, TV and air conditioning are also available.
Next to the room is a kitchen with a dirt floor (doma).
I think it will be enjoyable!

A house built like this is not found anywhere in the world.

Our house stands on a hill overviewing the Akashi Kaikyo bridge. Woods and gardens fill the area and full of nature. The house is wooden and has a homely atmosphere. The second floor has a high ceiling surrounded with glass windows, which gives you a wonderful view of the scenery and nature.
There is a piano, a fireplace and a deck.

・View that overlooks the ocean and the bridge.
・Living room with an open ceiling.

We loved Yoshie and Akihiko's house. We chose their house because of the proximity to Awaji island. Yoshie and Akihiko made sure to pick us from trainstation each time as we had very busy sightseeing itineraries. Their house is a perfect example of modern japanese home designed by Akihiko himself. Our room was a traditional Japanese style room facing the bay. The view was outstanding. We loved hanging out with their family and we're welcomed to a wonderful breakfast every morning. Yoshie cooked delicious food. We also had a dinner exchange where i made them indian food and they cooked Japanese food. We loved our stay here and hope to keep in touch with them.

Yoshie's room is wonderful in all respects. Akihiko picked me up by his car though the house is close to the bus stop. It is very helpful when you have heavy luggage. Once you get into the house, a very kind, considerate host will welcome your arriving, and you can enjoy talking with family members at night. Also, you can stay the night in a very beautiful Japanese-style room (Washitsu). Moreover, in the morning, you can have delicious breakfast which Yoshie makes for you. Putting up at the house gives you great experience in Japan. I recommend you to stay there when you travel to Kobe. この家はすべての点において素晴らしいです。バス停から近いですが、ご家族の方が車で迎えに来てくれました。重い荷物を持っている方は非常に助かると思います。家族の方全員が家に来たことを歓迎してくださり、家族の方と非常に楽しく会話することができました。そして非常にきれいな和室に泊まることができます。さらに朝には非常においしい朝食を頂くことができます。神戸に来た時にはこの家に泊まることをおすすめします。
