Sasayurian  / Nara Nara・Ikaru・Tenri 85


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.

In a building with particular attention, even in the rain it was familiar as if it was an option and I could spend relaxing time. It is quite satisfying in the luxurious space of one group, but it is a little disappointing that the staff building is too close. I felt a little worried about the timing to eat and the morning, so I started to move for the preparation.
