Renovated Classic Home

Kokoyui is a traditional house built over 100 years ago.  It is made of local cedar and cypress trees in the classic architecture of its time.  There are Japanese style rooms with tatami flooring and sliding doors.  There is a small courtyard to sit and relax in.  A kitchen is available for use.  

The home has been in the family for generations with the youngest in the family being the driving force to preserve the home and open it up to share with visitors from around the globe.

It is located in a small town called Shimosato, southeast of Katsuura and Taiji along the Pacific coast in a rural settlement; a close knit community with narrow alleys and a quiet laidback atmosphere.  Nearby the coastline is an estuary with unpatrolled beach populated with surfers searching for waves to ride.

There is marvelously prepared materials in English explaining the area and all of its facilities such as shops, restaurants and sites to see.

◆ IMPORTANT NOTICE ◆ Sorry, closed until December 31, 2020.
