An utterly charming stay in a traditional 1920s building, which was once a tea master's home. Choose from bunk-bed dorm rooms or five different-sized private tatami-mat rooms, some with garden views. Bathing facilities are shared (bring your own toiletries and towel, or buy or rent them here) and there's a shared kitchen for self-caterers. Per night rates fall the longer you stay.
Children under 10 are not permitted, to preserve the home's shōji (sliding paper doors) and antique glass windows. It's about eight minutes on foot from Kintetsu Nara Station.
