【Report by the foreigner who knows Ayabe well.】

Name of facility : Seventh Home (Farm Stay) Visit date : 2020/10/26 Visitor name : Nathaniel Hoy


Located a little over 10km from Ayabe Station the 'Seventh Home' guest house makes a relaxing base to explore the local area.

'Seventh Home' lets you experience a traditional Japanese home stay.


Entrance hall at 'Seventh Home'


The owners and their son are waiting to welcome you into their home.

The home itself is over 100 years old and combines the traditional with the modern, including a large sofa brought back from the US where the husband used to live.

The wife is a Vegetable Sommelier who can cook you an amazing meal,

teach you to cook or lead you in a morning yoga class

to help start the day.


Backyard garden


With a large garden out back most of the vegetables are hyper-local.

When I visited I joined the family for a delicious dinner.

The next morning I joined the son for his walk to school.

Japanese children often walk to school with classmates who live nearby so by the time we arrived at the school we had formed a small parade.


Can you find 'Totoro'?


The family has a large collection of different sized bikes which guests are welcome to use.

When I visited I was taken on a short guided bike tour of the local area and shown the 'Totoro' woods where from the right angle you can see 'Totoro' at the top of a local mountain.
