Wasurenosato Gajoen, Kagoshima
In building Wassrenosato Gajoen, the proprietor hoped to create a place where people who no longer have a spiritual home town can find peace and comforts. Six formerly private homes were transported here and reconstructed over a span of 20years to house Gajoen’s 10 guestrooms, each giving guests very private farm-style living space. Ceilings are of wood, walls of plaster, a main room floored in fragrant rush tatami. Together they do exude the atmosphere of a country hamlet. A 20 ton rock has been carved out to form the inn’s unique open-air bath. 8 Of 10 rooms have private rotenburo. Delicately flavored meals are prepared using home-grown vegetables, free-range chickens, freshly laid eggs, and locally produced Satsuma pork.
