Renting an entire house makes you feel like you live there.

Ikaruga, Nara, allows visitors to experience history and culture handed down since the Asuka period along with Ikaruga Village, a place whose scenery hasn't changed a lot in 1,400 years.

Four bedrooms in total: Ikaruga, Manyo, Yamato and Heijo

All of the rooms are simple and calm spaces based on the concept of "making you feel like you live there," and they allow you to heal the fatigue of your trip.

Living room

Relax with your family and friends while looking back on your memories of the day.


In between trips, use this room as you see fit, for spending time alone, getting engrossed in reading, or planning the next day's travels.
