1ヶ月間、この民宿に滞在しました。オーナーの方はとても親切で、日々の会話が楽しく有意義でした。自然に囲まれた環境で、野うさぎやたぬきなどの動物たちとの出会いもあり、身近に自然を感じることができました。特に夜には、星空が美しいことに感動しました。朝早く起きて家を出ると、静寂の中で日の出を迎える贅沢な時間がありました。季節によって変化する景色も楽しみの一つで、夏には緑豊かな景色、稲の収穫の季節にはまた異なる風景が広がるとのことで、また宿泊したいと思ってます。 ありがとうございました。

조용한 시골마을에 위치한 고민가입니다 츠치우라하나비 대회때문에 그나마 가까운위치에 예약했는데 굉장히 넓은 집이라 넓게 이용하고 주인분께서 옆집에 지내시기 때문에 필여할때 도움도 받을수있고 일본시골 감성을 느낄수있었습니다 10분거리에 오오스기 신사도있고 30분거리에 사와라 1시간거리에 츠쿠바산도 갈수있어서 나름 여기저기 가기전 들리기도 좋아요 추울수있었는데 전기매트랑 난방도 완벽해서 정말 따뜻하게 지낼수있었어오

Stayed here before our flight out of Narita to have an authentic ryokan experience. It was amazing! The hosts are so nice and welcoming. The rooms are big and the whole house was very clean. Bathrooms were great with awesome water pressure. It's in a nice rural location so you get the whole rice field countryside experience! We would definitely stay here again. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience!

30min driving from Narita Airport. You can experience a local Japan life in this beautiful big house. Owner Fujiko is very friendly and kind so we were so comfortable to spend time with her. We stayed there only one night but we saw another side of Japan which is amazing country side. Thank you very much. ❤️❤️❤️

It's a really nice old japanese house surrounded by picturesque rice fields. The host, Fukjiko san, was really friendly and helpful. Everything was very clean and i really enjoyed my stay at Inashiki nest. There is a kitchen, laundry facilities, showers etc. There are some smaller shops around the area to buy food and the locals are very friendly. I was traveling through japan with my bicycle so cannot say much about how public transport is in the area but cycling around worked perfect. there are lots of small sideroads with only very little traffic, perfect for cycling. Can recommend visiting the local sweets shop beside the temple (ca 20min walk from the accomodation).

Sceneries or memories?

茨城県稲敷市 田園風景The rural landscape of the Inashiki City, Ibaraki Prefecture, stretches endlessly, reminiscent of the Kanto Plain.

INASHIKI NEST is located in Inashiki City, Ibaraki Prefecture, right on the border with Chiba Prefecture. This area is sometimes referred to as “Chibaraki.”

 

Interestingly, despite being a nearby rural destination, it is only a little over an hour’s drive from Tokyo.

 

You can experience the authentic rural scenery with vast countryside landscapes and enjoy the soothing breeze blowing through the area. It is situated close to Kasumigaura, the second-largest lake in Japan.

 

INASHIKI NEST is not your typical tourist destination.

茨城県稲敷市田園風景This is especially evident just after the rice planting season.

It doesn’t have a nearby train station, so reaching it by public transportation can be a bit challenging. However, it is easily accessible by car or bicycle.

 

As a result, the vicinity remains uncrowded, providing a tranquil and serene environment for visitors to relax.

The lodging available here is a traditional Japanese-style house. Despite being a first-time visitor, there is a sense of nostalgia and comfort in its appearance.

When you open the large sliding doors in the living room, the wind flows through the house, creating a very pleasant atmosphere. You can relax on the tatami mats, read or meditate on the “engawa” (porch), and spend your time at ease in the tranquility of the natural surroundings. It’s a peaceful and serene environment where you can unwind, create enjoyable memories with friends and family, and have your own time as you like.

INASHIKI NEST 縁側The veranda is located by the south window of the traditional Japanese house – during winter, the sunlight streams onto the veranda around midday, creating a warm and cozy spot.

The fields are filled with herbs and vegetables depending on the season.

You can use freshly harvested vegetables to cook in the kitchen of the inn or make fresh herb tea.

A short distance away, you’ll find the preserved historical streets of Koedo SAWARA, where you can immerse yourself in the atmosphere of old Edo (Tokyo’s former name). Exploring the area and dropping by cafes make for an enjoyable experience, as you reflect on the history.

You can take a leisurely stroll or bike ride along the ring-ring road of Lake Kasumigaura, explore the narrow paths through rice paddies, and visit the famous Ohsugi Shrine, known for granting wishes.
