Spend a Night at a Traditional Boathouse


Unique traditional accommodations with a tranquil bay view in a charming village


Ine is a charming fishing village that sits on a calm protected bay on the Sea of Japan. The village is known for its unusual residential style of funaya, a type of home built right on the water above the family’s boat shed. Funa no Yado: Kura is a renovated funaya made into a delightful inn, with modern facilities in a classic building once used by a local fishing family.

Guests can bask in the warmth of the hosts’ hospitality, as the inn is for the exclusive use of one party. The tatami-floored main guestroom offers great views of the calm waters of the bay. Even the bathroom, featuring a traditional Shigaraki-ware tub, offers a sweeping view of the outdoors and access to sea breezes. 

From Kyoto Ine is a little over three hours by train from central Kyoto—and just an hour from Amanohashidate, known as one of Japan’s three most scenic vistas. Reservations can be booked online in English.
