Beautiful like a paradise past. This is where Japan originated. Located in Nara, the heart of Aku history, "Sasayurian" is an extremely exclusive newly renovated thatching hermitage that only hosts one set of guests per day. A brief history of "Sasayurian" and its name. Sasayuri is a type of lily unique to Japan that was quite common until just about thirty years ago. But due to climate change and environmental degredation, it has become a rarity. Buildings with thatchings are one of Japan's traditional architectural crafts that boats "coolness in the summer, and warmth in the winter. Like the Sasayuri, it was a common style for houses in Japan until about fifty years ago. However they have disappeared rapidly in recent years. Both the sasayuri and thatching houses are in danger of becoming things of the past. Our desire to preserve the beauty of past Japan is reflected in the name "Sasayurian." Here, you can enjoy the great view of Tanada, which has been selected as one of "Japan's 100 Villages," and reminisce the feelings of a nostalgic Japan. You are sure to be touched by the one and only experience of this well-preserved traditional Japan.

For meals, you can pre-order a variety of our special-grade Iga Beef dishes from our catering menu. Hotpots, Seasonal vegetable Tajines, shiitake, konnyaku, horse mackerel, freshwater trout, and more can be enjoyed by the warmth of a hearth. You will feel as though you are reliving the Edo Period. The crackles and dancing flames of the fire is incredibly relaxing and enjoyable to take your meal with. For guests who are seeking a special experience (4 or more in the party), we will invite Michelin starred Japanese cuisine chefs to join us at the hermitage to prepare an exclusive meal for you. We are also fully equipped with all kitchen appliances, so guests have the option of bringing in their own ingredients to cook with their friends and families for a more intimate experience. We also have a "Glamping Option," only possible because of the immense nature surrounding our hermitage, for interested guests. Glamping guests can enjoy a campfire under the starlit night sky along with appetizers and wine as well as local sake. Spring through fall, we also offer outdoor pizza ovens and BBQ.Read moreClose
