PROPERTY Description

Yougendo Harmonious with Nature Yougendo is a traditional Japanese house of the type that is rapidly disappearing from Japan. Made entirely from natural materials, and constructed without the use of nails or metal, we offer the rare experience of staying in a living, breathing organic structure. The Real Deal Large private grounds, immense wooden beams, wattle and daub walls, rice straw flooring and paper sliding doors make our house the perfect place to capture a feel of the old Japan. Without the high rates or rules of a "ryokan".

Warm and Welcoming We aim to make your stay as comfortable as possible providing where possible the services and standards of a good hotel yet keeping the feel and familiarity of an international travellers inn. With our one price policy you can take advantage of a wide range of facilities usually offered as "optional extras" at many other places in our price range.

The Heart of Kansai Our fantastic location makes it possible to see the whole of the area with ease. See the temples of Kyoto, take in the ancient feel of Nara, shop, dine and club in Osaka, hike the hills of Mie or get cosmopolitan in Kobe the choice is yours. We can help you plan your trip both on off the beaten track. A stay at Yougendo especially gives you access to the countryside you’ve always associated with Japan. Let our knowledge of the area open up yet another side of this wonderful country.

    This large pagoda is breathtaking both close up and from a distance as part of the skyline of the ancient city that is Nara.

  • Other Views :
    Festival gate is an area near the zoo and home to Span world - many floors of baths and spas from around the world.. a gym and retaurants make this a huge complex to have a hot soak. A mixed pool on th etop floor requires swim wear to gain entry.
    Hoop is the number one place to shop in the area offering 5 floors of branded clothes bags and accessories very near the station.
    Dinner should definately be had in the Shinsekai area near to the local Tsutenkaku tower. This large tower becomes covered in neon at night and is impossible to miss.
    Shinsekai is an area dominated by Kushikatsu restaurants many of which offer cheap beer, food and live music. The area is popular with young Japanese any night of the week. Kushikatsu both delicious and high in calories and should be tried at least once.

Owner Description

Chris and SHU met in Brighton, England in 1997. Soon to be married one year later they have been bosom buddies, travelling partners and socialites for the last twelve years. Their mutual appreciation for each others countries, and the world in general have helped them to spawn a wide network of friends from around the globe. Due to the steady influx of friends coming to stay at their apartment in Japan each year and the sheer enjoyment they gain from helping to look after people, they decided to set up Yougendo. Whilst being young enough to embrace a modern outlook on life they also realize the importance of preservation, and the environment in which we live. Their ideology is reflected in their guest house. Never happier in the company of people they hope to show you a slower side of Japan. Starting with a good nights sleep.
