Hands-on Experiences Nature Experiences/Culinary Experiences

Meals Available (Meals are prepared with others)

Situated at the end of a mountain road, this old house's most distinctive feature is its large roof.
The area around the house echoes with the sound of the birds, bugs, and frogs. You'll be greeted by the cat and dog when you arrive at this tranquil spot.
The owner, Mrs Naméra used to live in Matsue, but once her children moved out, she returned here to her childhood home. Mrs Naméra opened Namé-chan's House after attending a seminar in the city where she was advised to open her house to lodgers. Now she enjoys introducing the joys of nature to all the people she meets. Plenty of people come to visit and are charmed by how cheerful Mrs Naméra is!
A visit packed with outdoor fun. This place is ideal for people wanting to unwind in the countryside, or for people who get their hands dirty in the soil, and for family groups, too.
