Shoya no Sato Kominka Tanaka is a luxury ryokan (Japanese-style inn) located in the quaint countryside of Isumi City, Chiba Prefecture. Operated by Tanaka Co Ltd, this ryokan has been around for nearly 400 years and still retains its historical charm - along with its historical importance.
What Are Kominka?
Shoya no Sato Kominka is in a building known as a 'kominka,' or an old Japanese folk home. Kominka are traditional, pre-war buildings, usually found in the countryside.
This particular kominka once served as the residence of the Seki family, who served the Toki Clan during the Sengoku Period. Also known as the Warring States Period, this was a turbulent age of civil war between 1467-1615 in which Japan's feudal lords fought each other for land and power.
A Modern Renovation of a 400-year-old Home
Presently, this historically important old folk home has been fully renovated to accommodate the modern visitor, while retaining its traditional architecture and charm. You'll really feel as if you've stepped back in time!
The interior is made completely from natural materials, and is fully-equipped with modern home appliances to accommodate even long-term stays. The wide outdoor space includes a Japanese garden, swimming pool, BBQ spot, campfire area, and an open-air bath with skin-beautifying well water, all on your own private lawn!
Rentals are exclusive and limited to one group per day, so you're guaranteed privacy and don't have to worry about crowds. As an added precaution against viruses, all rooms are also equipped with air conditioners that function as ventilators. And the space is only about 1 hour and 45 minutes away from Tokyo!
Spacious, private, and easily accessible, this is the perfect place to stay for individuals and families who want to get away (without going out of your way!)
