We are Inase Otsu Machiya Bed and Breakfast just opened in April 2017. The building was originally constructed in 1933 for a local rice seller, and built primarily with natural construction materials for floors, ceilings, interior & exterior walls, etc. So in the restoration and renovation process, we made great effort to preserve and utilize the materials of the original old building.
An atmosphere steeped in Otsu’s rich past, enhanced by the sunshine and crisp breeze coming up from Lake Biwa during the day, and the glow of the inn’s exterior lantern adding to the relaxed evening ambience.
- Check in time 3pm to 9pm
- Non Smoking
- Free Japanese Breakfast included.
Inase (ee-nah-se) is a small bed & breakfast style inn featuring five total guest rooms, including both traditional machiya rooms and more modern mid-century style Western rooms.
Experience the area’s vibrant local culture, deep history, and the rich natural surroundings of Lake Biwa, while taking rest in a calm and elegant traditional atmosphere.
We hope your stay at Inase will be enjoyable, and also a memorable experience of the deep culture and tradition of our city, Otsu.
We are very much looking forward to seeing you!
