IS JAPAN COOL? TOKYO
Traditional Japanese guest house
1. Recently in Japan, shop buildings and various other facilities have begun making use of traditional Japanese houses to maintain the old Japanese way of life and culture.
2. In keeping with this trend, traditional Japanese guest houses have appeared.
3. While you stay there and enjoy meals with other guests in these warm, traditional-style facilities, you can also experience the history of homes and lifestyle of people in the past.
4. One such place is “toco.” in Ueno, which offers caring hospitality in an old house from the Taisho Era. Take time to contemplate a beautifully maintained garden while sipping hot green tea, seated on an engawa, an old Japanese wood deck facing the garden.
