Yakage Honjin (the inn where fuedal lords) would stay while on journey to Edo (the capital of Japan) is a magnificant collection of rooms and buildings that show the prosperous era of the 17th century.
Yakage-ya Inn and Suites opened in 2015, and is located in central Yakage Town, which is known for its historical district and festivals celebrating traditional customs. Set in a 200-year-old building, this Japanese Inn is a stylish mix of traditional Japanese and contemporary interior styles. This Japanese Inn has 15 rooms, all of which are decorated in a mixed Japanese and Western style. From the lobby and bar counter in the main lobby, to the guestrooms in the main and annex buildings, the inn is designed to offer guests a relaxing and comfortable stay.
The restaurant features selections of seafood from the Seto Inland Sea and locally harvested produce. Even if you aren’t staying in this Japanese inn, you are more than welcomed to stop by and enjoy are drink at the bar.
Each space you move through has a long history and you can imagine what might have happened in each room. Each area has been painstakingly designed to consider the sunlight, function, and formality of the space and using nature as inspiration for the motifs strategically placed in each room. An example is the wooden frame above the entrance to the feudal lords resting room, you see the use of grapes which symbolized the hope of producing many children. Depending on the time of day, the reflection highlights different parts of the design.
A visit to the very rare inn and homestead will make your visit to Yakage more memorable.
