Many people have gathered in this old house neither a store nor an inn.

Tokamachi Shi, Niigata Ken
4-5 days

Concept

Established in May 2015. Neither a store nor an accommodation, but a hundred-year-old Japanese house in a tiny village of only 6 houses. Over 70 people have lived together in 5 years and over 8,400 people have visited. Instead of providing a specific experience value, we offers a variety of possibilities. I am enjoying the empathy and development through communal living and various encounters with visitors.

3 Key Points

1Host’s introduction

I moved to here and have lived in this house for over 5 years, and my job is app development. My wife is on childcare leave and our son is 9 months old. There are always around 10 other people living here trying out new ways of working and living. In the past, foreigners and single mothers with children lived with us.
