Sen no Ie (仙の家) – Miyanoura


Sen no Ie (仙の家) is ideally situated on the banks of the Miyanoura River.  The cottages are also near to Shiratani Unsuikyo.  The owner of Sen no Ie is a master craftsman working with the precious yakusugi wood.  There is an exhibition room of his work in the main building.

There are 4 cottages and 3 have a fitted kitchen with cooking equipment.  The cottages of Sen no Ie can sleep between 2 – 5 people and so they are ideal for families.  The cottages are tatami style with futons.  Some of the cottages have the traditional charcoal fires.  There is also a traditional wood-fired iron bath to sit in and relax after a long day’s hike.  The deluxe cottage even has a massive sugi bath carved out of one large log!  The sound of the river is ever-present and the cottages are surrounded by sugi trees so you really do feel as though you are in the heart of nature.

Sen no Ie staff speak English.

Cottage rates are from  11,000 yen – 22,000 yen with 2 people in a cottage.
