Welcome to Shirouzaemon! Stay at a private guesthouse on a cliff by the sea. A traditional home-cooked Japanese dinner and breakfast is included in the price.
The guesthouse is located in Takahama city, and has a stunning view of the ocean. You will be able to experience what it is like to live in a traditional Japanese village. Your host and other locals will take you exploring, fishing, and give you a special Kimono-wearing experience!
Our one-floor guesthouse consists of a wooden floor section and three tatami sections. There are large windows to one side of the house which allow you to have a magnificent view of the sea. The interior of the guesthouse focuses on elements of the Showa era in Japan. Guests will be provided with futons (floor mattresses) to sleep on.
There are many kimonos in the room for decoration, but you can also try them on if you like :)
Zugang für Gäste
There is no bathroom in the guesthouse. But we have a private bathroom for Airbnb guests on the ground floor of the main house, located directly next to the guesthouse. The doors are unlocked so please feel free to enter and use the bathroom whenever you like.
All facilities are modern and clean. The shower and the toilet are separated.

If you are not coming by car, but are arriving with public transport. I can pick you up at Higashi Maizuru Station. My family will also be bringing your meals to your room.
The amount of additional social interaction is completely up to you. I am always available to take you around Takahama or to nearby cities for sightseeing.
If you have children, I'm sure they will have a lot of fun playing with my children :)

Since there are no restaurants in Takahama, my family will provide you with dinner and breakfast. All of the ingredients we use are locally sourced and seasonal. In fact, the seaweed is hand-picked and dried by me. You can see the type of food we offer in the pictures. The meals will vary depending on what is in season and available at the time. But it will always be a home-cooked traditional Japanese meal!

Hi, I'm Shusaku, the owner of the guesthouse 'Shirouzaemon'. We are a family of 9 (5 kids, 2 seniors, my wife and I) living in Takahama city, Fukui Prefecture. We made the decision to move to Takahama from the city a few years ago and do not regret it. Takahama is a tiny village by the sea that still retains the beauty of old Japan. Our family has greatly benefited from adapting to the slow and natural life in Takahama and would like to share this with the rest of the world. That is why we have built a private guesthouse next to our house for travelers from all over the world, so that everyone can have the chance to experience the natural and peaceful life of traditional Japan.
