Unconventional Off-grid Japanese Rental House
Guesthouse ikkyu is a unique project, an old Japanese farmhouse restored as an eco-home, where a lofty main room welcomes guests. The house was reformed over an intense three-year period. It features Japanese style architecture with tatami mats and sliding fusuma doors. There is a cozy sitting area with wood burning stove and counter, behind which is a small kitchen area. The toilet is composting and the pride of the owner, who even has a picture of it on his business cards! There are two baths, one inside and one outside. The outdoor one is on the balcony, a modified goemon-buro bath which is heating with a small fire under it. The owner offers shuttle service after 16:00 from Koguchi and the Hongu area. No shuttles are available in the morning, but the nearest bus stop is about a 10-minute walk. No meals are supplied.
