Although these are far and few in between in the land of the kiritanpo, there’s one that stands out not only for the hospitality of the owner and the comfort offered, but also because of the water-related adventures that are available for guests and also for non-staying visitors.

By combining his passions for woodcrafting and watersports, he started his guesthouse on the southern edge of Oga Peninsula, on the shores of the Sea of Japan. The guesthouse is a spacious two-floor wooden building renovated by the owner himself and several curious decor items can be seen throughout the house.

Famed for its sake and samurai, Akita prefecture offers quintessential Japanese culture in a non-touristy setting. Alongside the celebrated rice paddies and historical sites of the region lies dramatic natural scenery in the form of the rugged coastline of the Oga Peninsula and the Dakigaeri Gorge, best visited in autumn, when the leaves begin to change color.
