    What makes this place so special however, is the carefully thought-out hand crafted touches that adorn every inch of the guesthouse. Named after the citrus trees that grow in the area Katsuo’s ‘Yuzu Room’ is a private room furnished and finished with natural wood sourced from Yuzu forest located in the nearby hills of eastern Kochi Prefecture. It also features a terrace and a hammock for relaxing and napping.

    The guest house’s ‘Bonito Room’ is based around the fish popular in the Kochi area. Finished with Tosa Japanese paper, and blue and white walls like the deep neighboring sea, staying in this room is as close to living underwater as you can get. There’s also the spacious ‘Sake Room’, which works both as a dorm-style room and an event space depending on the season.

    During your visit be sure to ask about the many social events in the area that are supported by the guesthouse, they’re a great way to meet people and really embrace everything Kochi has to offer. There are day trips to popular sites, festival events, arts and crafts gatherings and other celebrations depending on the time of year.
