We have renovated this 50 year-old ryokan house (Japanese style hotel) by ourselves. We spent 6 months to renew the house with help from local professional craftsmen, our friends and families, and even strangers passing by. Being fascinated by Japanese antiques, we have traveled all over the country to collect old stuff. We have built new flooring and decorated the guesthouse interior with collected antique woods and furniture, which makes our guesthouse one of a kind.

We want our lounge space to be a place that connects people who are living different lives from different countries. This lounge is not only enjoyed by guest house visitors but also locals, providing a wonderful opportunity to mingle with the people of Matsumoto. You are also of course welcome to enjoy a little time by yourself by reading books on the comfortable couch area, listening to classical guitar music in the background, or in a small quiet room at the front of the guesthouse facing the street. You can also enjoy drinks and watch the fire in the pellet stove during winter. Talking to locals at the bar, reading a book on the couch, and working on business in the quiet room… each guest spends their time as they please.


The bar area is open on Fridays and Saturdays between 19:00~23:00 for everyone including locals.
