Sano San Chi

Introduction

Recreating the mundane life
in today's world.

Reviving Japan’s mundane lifestyle, that were treasured and maintained by the people.
Those aspects are forgotten amongst us,
and many landscapes are lost as the time goes by.
A lifestyle appreciating the warmth of people, nature and culture.

<People> Touching clear and modest hearts.
<Time> Spending at ease without resistance.
<Food> Enjoying delicacies of the season.
<Entertainment> Appreciating the nature unique to the land.

Reviving this beautiful, unique Japanese lifestyle in the present world.
The concept of our guest house is the 'Everyday Japanese Lifestyle' created with the local people of Izumisano.

Guest House

Previously the home of a fisherman’s family, this house was renovated in April 2018 and is now a guest house approved by the government. Located in a quiet area just a few minutes drive from Kansai International Airport, this place is suitable for long-term stays.

There is a parking space on the property so we recommend you to rent a car after arriving at the airport. Drop off your luggage at home and go enjoy a hands-free trip to Senshu, Hannan, Wakayama, and Nara to enjoy the nature, as well as sightseeing in the city of Osaka, Kyoto, and Kobe.
While staying at this guest house you can also enjoy local Izumisano cuisine and cultural activities, and experience the mundane life of living in Japan.

This guest house is a two-story house with a unique Japanese layout.
It has a living room, a kitchen, a dining room, 3 tatami-floored bedrooms and 1 bedroom with wooden flooring, that can accommodate up to 11 people.
The furniture you find in the dining room are made by a famous Japanese brand Karimoku.

There is no gaming equipment or accessories in this house because we wanted to create a space where the guests can enjoy the traditional Japanese lifestyle. Most importantly, our guesthouse values “Everyday Japan (a peaceful lifestyle)” above all else so we kindly ask our guests to be considerate and respectful to the neighbors during their stay.
