Welcome home !
Welcome to our mountain village Chikahagi.
I am Miki from Kuu House in Chikahagi!
Our mom Yuko who loves antiques and the good old days, and has been renovating this 150 year old minka (Japanese house) for the last 30 years. My husband, Keita, and I joined her, and this house was reborn as “Country Stay Kuuhouse "
The three of us will look after you like a part of our family; it’s Japanese hospitality - “omotenashi.” We hope to make Kuu House where you want to keep coming back, like your home!
Dinner is served around “irori”, Japanese hearth, we grill meat and fish on the charcoal. Yuko’s home cooked dishes are made with seasonal organic vegetables, served on Japanese antique plates she has collected. We also serve vegetarian, vegan, or game meats (local wild venison and boar meat). Please let us know if you have any specific dietary restrictions.
We prep and cook meals with you, it’s almost like a cooking class. Sometimes people from our village come over and join us. You can learn about our town Ichikawamisato-Cho from them.
