We drove more than three hours to get to this quaint remote village located north of Kyoto. And the village is definitely worth the drive. It's incredibly beautiful and quiet. A cafe had just opened on the day of the arrival, and it is right on the dock, so we sat by this big French window, sipping coffee and looking... More

We visited this beautiful place in January. It was cold, sunny, and fortunately not very breezy. We walked alone in the village and maybe just saw one or two other small group of tourists. If you want a change from crowded streets of Osaka, this is definitely it. For people who usually live in the cities, do take your time... More

When you make a visit to Kyoto and want a break that is special consider visiting this knock-out charming fishing village with its beautiful, unique fisherman's dwellings on the sea.

If your trip to Kansai is long enough or if it's not your first trip to Osaka or Kyoto, try paying a visit to this rare and atmospheric sight of Japan. Probably due to its distance from either Kyoto or Osaka, the coverage of this place in foreign-language travel guides tend to be merely one or two pages, which makes... More

We can see Ine bay from room, even while bathing in the bathroom. Funaya provides pick-up services, we even took boat back to pier next to bus station. I had an... More

By chance, we stopped off at "Ochaya-no-kaka" (next to the P.O.) for directions to the boat tours and by chance we discovered that they were serving lunch (it doesn't seem like a very regular occurance), so we stayed for a meal. The local fish was so fresh and it was wonderful tasting some good old-fashioned home cooked meal, for a... More

Nice experience venturing alone in this wonderful area, stayed here for a night in a simple funaya. Woke up early in the morning just to experience true serenity where you can hear boats rubbing against the dockline not too loud or violent.. good for relaxing.

Though it’s not only seen in Japan, it is still a unique place where you can see many “funa-ya” or boathouses all around the main bay of the town of Ine (yeené). A large number of the Ine people still live and engage in fishing activities from and in these boathouses. Often you can see them sorting the day’s catches... More

Beautifull bay lined with historical small fishermans houses. Quiet and relax atmosphere. Small guesthouses serve traditional japanese accomodation, food and hospitality. Sometimes rather expensive, but superb quality!
