Yui-an Guest House
  • The old post town of Tsumago in the Kiso Valley is situated along the historic Nakasendo route that connected Kyoto to Edo (modern day Tokyo) during feudal time Japan. The town was used as a stop over for warriors and their clans as they made the grueling trek up through the mountains towards Tokyo to pay respect to the Shogunate in the Edo period of Japanese history.

    Today the residents of the town have gone to extreme efforts to maintain the look and atmosphere of the town during these old times, and many of the original guesthouses still serve as a places to stay for travelers from all walks of life. Making reservations at these guesthouses through can be tough as they are small and in high demand, they can also get quite pricey depending on the season.

    One way to enjoy the town of Tsumago while also experiencing a traditional style guesthouse at a reasonable price is to look slightly further afield for accommodation. Plasse that aren’t located right along the Nakasendo, but in the mountainous landscape that surrounds it, are easier to book and cost a lot less.

    One great example of this type of place is Yui-an Guest House, a small, family run place that welcomes travelers of all ages from all over the world. This old farmhouse was recently converted to accommodate guests in either dormitory style shared rooms or private Japanese tatami rooms from 3,000 yen per person per night – costs get more expensive for private rooms, and these rates depend on availability. They have a cozy lounge that has a wood burning fireplace and comfy sofas to relax on. The dining room also operates as a café for guests, serving both homemade breakfast and dinners daily. A selection of local sake and craft beers are also available.
    For guests who would rather prepare their own meals, there is an open kitchen, which has a variety of basic cooking utensils, that is free for all guests.

    Showers are of course also free to use, but be warned that bathtub and towel rental come at an extra cost. Laundry services are also available at a cost.

    The highlight is the location, the guesthouse has a wooden terrace that overlooks the mountainous Kiso Valley, which boasts a breathtaking landscape that looks spectacular come rain or shine. Guests can also use this outdoor area for barbequing and socializing.
