About our home

Beautiful private room in a busy house in Hinase, Japan. The three-storey building hosts an English-language school. There are two separate rooms for guests on the ground floor. We rent these out as Air Bnb accommodation. It suits singles or couples. You can book both rooms if you have kids. There is a kitchen, bathroom, laundry and common rooms. It's a real family-type atmosphere. We host workawayers on the second floor to help in the language school. You are welcome to join in or enjoy your privacy.

Where is it?


Local life in a small town by the harbour in beautiful Okayama, Japan. There are plenty of local restaurants, fishing right outside the door (no guarantees you'll catch fish though), ski fields an hour's drive away and islands of the inland sea just a short ferry trip. Easy access to Osaka, Hiroshima, Okayama and Himeji. Plenty to see and do.
