Traditional & Sophisticated Life
Mr. Kyoichiro & Mrs. Yoko Kawabe will be your host at the Kawabe House. They have lived in Inamuragasaki, Kamakura for about 45 years. They sincerely love and enjoy the ocean and nature of Kamakura. Their life is very fine and detailed in the very Japanese style of the good old days. If you want to experience and feel this unique Japanese atmosphere, Kawabe Family is the right host for you to stay with.
Kawabe House was built on the foot of a mountain 45 years ago with a mixture of Japanese and western style, although its garden and gate are pure Japanese style. Kawabe House is located in a quiet residential area filled with natural beauty of lush greenery. It is about a 4 minute walk from Inamuragasakistation and a 5 minute to the beach. You would feel peaceful and relaxed with a view of the garden and the mountain greenery from a wide-open living room.
