Akatsuki is a “Minpaku” or homestay run by the cheery Maeda couple, in a neighborhood of Kurisugawa, on a narrow mountain road to the ridgetop settlement of Takahara (a 5 minute drive by car). 

It is a two story home with the guestrooms on the second floor.  One guestroom has twin beds and the other sleeps with futons on the floor.  The house itself is lovingly maintained and decorated with handmade crafts and flowers.  It is a comfortable and welcoming homestay environment.

The Maedas are thrilled to open their home to visitors and look forward to offering unique experiences to guests. Ms. Maeda playfully used the character 暁 “Akatsuki” for the name of the minpaku, which is a character in her husbands name (to make him work!).

They offer free pick-up and drop-off from Takahara, Takijiri-oji, and Kurisugawa bus stop.
