Kurosawa san welcomes you to his retirement home in the village of Ieyama ( prime green tea growing district). His passion is Japanese history specialising on the life of Tokugawa Ieyasu . Come & experience life in peaceful & friendly rural Japan .
Please check the photos and read the section below on Mr. Kurosawa and his little rural hangout .
You have the run of the complete house apart from one room (Mr. Kurosawa`a bedroom) The whole idea is to give you a Japanese rural experiance with some history attached !
Interaction with guests
You can see from my photos that the house and the room offered is really interesting and something not usually available. I have 3 other properties available in the Ieyama area however this one is the first house share situation. To explain a little, Mr. Kurosawa is a retired Ministry of Education employee as well as part time university lecturer. His area or expertise is the life and times of Tokugawa Ieyasu and the Tokugawa era. He speaks English to a basis level however is a great communicator face to face. To ensure a problem free stay I will coordinate your stay the same as I do for our other properties.
The room put aside for visitors is newly built and has a great outlook over Ieyama village. You will share the bathroom, kitchen and the rest of the house with Kurosawa san . He will only have one guest at a time (or one couple) Please note babies/infants are permited but due to the fact that there a lot of displays any damage caused will be the parents responable .Babies/infants (0~5years old) are half price
The room has a permanent single bed and roll away or futon can be placed in the same room to cater for couples.
The house is a 7minute walk from the Ieyama station and you do not require a car. In most cases I will pick you up, take you to our local market so you buy some what you require .
As with the other properties I coordinate , my driver is to get Ieyama on the map for of foreign guests. It is such a lovely part of the country and so many visitors come to Japan and only experience the city. Take a day or two and find out what a break in the countryside can offer.
Feel free to ask any questions ..
Other things to note
If you are into Osen`s we have one of most well known osen in this part of Japan just 10 minutes drive away . The Kawane Osen ((SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) it ) is very well priced (like only ¥500 per person) it is a natural osen (not just heated water) and has an outdoor area where you can sit and enjoy the scenery as well the warmth of the water
No smoking ….Just be reasonable , we are .
