Niyodo River’s Idyllic Lodging


Stay along the strikingly blue waters of the “Niyodo Blue” at a renovated guesthouse


Just a few minutes away from the Niyodo River, nicknamed the “Niyodo Blue” for its pristine, cobalt waters, is the Yananose folk house.
The Niyodo River House Yananose was originally built in the Meiji Period (1868-1912) and has been modernized while preserving its rustic heritage. You can book this traditional-style guest house, which is furnished with your comfort and convenience in mind. The traditional Japanese architecture, created out of natural wooden materials, features tatami mats as well as a traditional kamado (a traditional Japanese cook stove) and a clay pot used for cooking rice since long-gone times. The dining room is also equipped with modern cooking utensils, so you can use it like a home kitchen. This way, you won’t need to worry about dining out if you prefer to eat at home. A hammock, fireplace, guitar, and piano are also provided, so you can unwind in any manner that fits you best. Thanks to its modern renovations, it is suitable for both remote working and relaxing.
As the Niyodo River is walking distance from the guesthouse, you can feel oneness with nature while staying there. Hold an outdoor barbeque near the crystal-clear waters, which flow before emerald-green mountains. Additionally, tour companies operate water-based activities, such as rafting and canyoning, along the river and its waterfalls, so you can choose to balance your leisure time between relaxation and adventure.
As the house can host up to 8 people, individuals, friends, couples, and families are all welcome. Complementary Wi-Fi is included.
