Where you’ll be

Yame-shi, Fukuoka-ken, Japan

There are several local restaurants and cafe within a 10-15 minute walk of our place.

The production of the traditional refined green tea is number 1 (approx.45%) and is a prominent place for high quality tea in Japan. There are tea fields everywhere in Yame city, and is rich in greenery and is an area where the culture of tea is alive.

Around the town which continues from the Edo period, you will see the works of hand which has been passed on from generation to generation such as tea, kasuri, Buddhist altar, paper lantern, washi, stone lantern, Japanese sesame, bow and arrow, bamboo works, bucket, cedar incense stick and ceramics.

Our facility is located in the town of Yame Fukushima, which is placed at the entrance of Yame. It is a town of white walls which stand out beneath the blue sky. There are machiyas built between the Edo period to the beginning of Showa lined up leisurely.

It is recommended to walk around the Yame area before check-in. It is recommended to taste the space of traditional machiya which remains from long ago. You may enjoy your trip at your own pace.

Yame-shi located in the south from Fukuoka-shi about 45 km. It's famous as a production district of the best of Japan green tea (green tea of the highest quality). It's said that there are a lot of kinds of traditional arts and crafts the next around Kyoto.
It's an area which prospers as a commercial* handicraft industry place in the Edo Period that there is this building at a center of the city. Large-scale construction (house in the midst of the busy town) is in line relatively because I underwent influence in a castle town and there were a lot of clubs and wholesale stores of several industry sei wax, sake brewing, Japanese paper and tea manufacture with orderly subdivision of town.
A Japanese traditional house from the past selected by national important preservation district of historic buildings in 2002 is built much, and this Elijah is in line. More than 100 houses of repairing construction is going to be developed, and a young person moves, too and popularity has come out (A store of miscellaneous goods and eating and drinking is increasing.) Streets where a house in the midst of the busy town of old tile-roofing and a white wall of tsumanyuu ranges are attractive, so it's recommended to the person who would like to take a walk slowly (A message give the one of a request a guide beforehand.)
