Let's enjoy Shimanto's daily life!

You can enjoy the beautiful nature like Shimanto-River and deep green forest, good quality local foods and an open-air bath.
Our guesthouse has many attractive points. First of all, the Shimanto-River runs very close to us, so that you can swim in the river. Secondly the architecture of our guesthouse is an old style Japanese house. You can get a chance to feel the atmosphere of real life of rural side of Japan. Finally the railway is in front of our guesthouse. The location is ideal for watching local trains like the Kappa train, Hobby train and Shimantorocco.
We hope you will get relaxed with great nature of SHIMANTO!!!!
