The goal of a guesthouse is to provide a comfortable place for weary travelers to rest and re-energize for the next day's travels. With this goal in mind, our futons were carefully selected for us by the artisan's at our local traditional futon shop, Kanazawaya.

The great texture and feel of these futons has inspired many guests to stay another night or even go out and purchase their own.

The lower bunk is a traditional futon layed directly on our flexible tatami mats. The top bunk is a special type of textured futon mattress that provides great support.

If available, we recommend first time guests to try out the lower bunk futon that is directly on the tatami.
