I went to the magari-ya village before arriving to the Yamada home so I could notice the features of the house style. It is a unique stay as it is of historic value but is a private home. We gathered meal ingredients from the garden and made kuri-shibori confection from chestnuts picked in the yard. Wasabi is cultivated all around watered by the cold mountain stream water. We had pleasant conversations, excellent meals, and nice hot bath at night. They also have a cafe in the back that carries locally made items. Directions were tricky but the home is very close by to inari-ana. The home is up in the mountains and is very peaceful. The Yamada family are wonderful hosts and it is a special treat to be able to stay in a home of cultural value that are disappearing.
