Response from Chie & Chris:
Dear Janine. We're happy to read you appreciated the unique features of a Japanese house with Soji screens (paper doors) and Tsuchi Kabe (earthen walls). Ours were retrofitted with insulation material for the cold winter and summer heat, and fire retardant to abide by the rules of the lodging license we hold. Thank you again for your visit, we hope to meet you again!

Thank you for looking at our listings! We've been fortunate to live in different countries until we decided to settle back in Japan where Chie is from. It takes us quite a bit of time to find the perfect old traditional Japanese house to restore but it is all the more rewar…
