A small inn, located at the northernmost point near the sea in Hyogo prefecture, ran by a young couple.

ひととまるのこと

The ever changing Japan Sea moves 365 days.
Lead astray by the wind, I lose myself in narrow alleyways.
Black walls, hanging onions and friendly voices in a nostalgic dialect.
The warm scenery of Takeno.
Where you can feel the atmosphere through your skin, ears and eyes.
A balanced circle of a town, the sea and people.

Hitotomaru is refurbished a building that was vacant for about ten years into a guesthouse.
The first floor is named ’Nohohon’, where the books are located.
The books are donated by local people and people stay Hitotomaru.
The second floor is made with natural materials that are gentle on the body so that guests can stay comfortably.

Stop at the storefront aimlessly.
Spend time leisurely.
Stay in the guesthouse.
Welcome to ‘Hitotomaru’.

‘Nohohon’ is neither a library nor a bookcafe, and is a vaguely defined ‘place of books’.
You are free to read books, drink alcohol, and conceive your thoughts.
It aims to be the space where guests can spend leisurely.
The books were donated by people related to Takeno and Toyooka-City with the theme of ‘Favorite Books’.
The space was created in the hope that guests could feel a part of the area by coming across books selected by local people and people who are close to the area.

  • A place that used to be a bar has been reborn as ‘Nohohon’
    It is neither a library nor a book café, and is a vaguely defined ‘place of books’.
    I thought it might be visible because it was vague, so I named it.
    You are free to read books, drink alcohol, and conceive your thoughts.
    It aims to be the space where guests can spend leisurely.
    Besides my collections, the books were donated by people related to Takeno and Toyooka-City with the theme of ‘Favorite Books’.

    The community is made up of local people.
    The local state may be transparent by having a glimpse of one end of people through books.
    I want guests to feel people through books and to feel the region through people.
    I created this space with these thoughts.
    There are a selection of beverages such as liquor, tea, coffee and specialty drinks.
    There are also simple snacks.
    Please come and relax.

    ・Opening times are from 18:00
    ・Closed Wednesday and Thursday
