    If you want to stay waterside, a night or two at Waterfront Inn is definitely worth adding to your itinerary. This traditional style guesthouse is actually a refurbished funaya (classic local boathouse) perfect for those wanting to really get an authentic glimpse into the daily lives of the Ine locals.

    In 2005 the funaya of Ine were officially certified as an Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings. Their impressive architecture, rich history and stunning scenery have garnered them a position as one of Ine’s most valuable artifacts.

    Taiheiso Guesthouse is another fantastic option if the funaya accommodation is your style.
