Just a 45 to 50-minute drive from downtown Kobe and Osaka, discover a beautifully restored thatched-roof Kominka that seamlessly blends old-world charm with modern comforts. The main thatched-roof house, once a store, features a porch overlooking a seasonal garden. The cozy residential annex boasts a ground-floor dining room and upstairs bedrooms. Across the courtyard, a spacious earthen floor area beckons for creative use, whether as an atelier or gallery. You can create a multifunctional facility by using the main building into a restaurant, the atelier into a gallery, and the residential area for guests or for yourself.
