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


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 refurbished a building that was vacant for about ten years into a guesthouse.
The first floor houses a bar, which has a preserved classic Japanese ‘sunakku’ or ‘tea house’ appearance. This is a place where those staying over can interact with the locals.
On the second floor is the guesthouse. We have decided on having and abundance of natural materials to create a relaxed atmosphere.
Stay over in our shop.

You’re welcome!
