Guest House Tea Time

We started for Yamanaka-ko on Sep 3rd - this was right at the time when Typhoon Talas was moving through Japan. Since we had already booked GuestHouse TeaTime and 4 families were ready - we left for Yamanaka-ko anyways. Weather was really bad so we mostly stayed inside the cottage. There were 4 families with kids so there was lot of fun.

Owner of the guest house, Asakawa-san, and his wife are very friendly people. He had a collection of Hindi songs as well and he can sing "Pardesi Pardesi Jana Nahi". He had climed Fuji-san over hundred times.


We really enjoyed the stay at the guest house. Some other highlights:

  • There is very well equipped kitchen.
  • Enough parking place.
  • Barbeque place.
  • There are big tables in the living room for 4 families to play cards.
  • Free Wi-Fi.
  • Huge TV [we enjoyed the woman's football match between Japan & Korea].
  • Each family got a separate bedroom on second floor.
  • Our deal was with breakfast and this was one of the best breakfast we ever had in any of the Japan hotels. Fully customized for Indian vegetarian needs.
  • Please visit his nice english web site for more details:
