Key details

Contact with the animals will help you understand the importance of life. The generous hospitality of your lively hosts knows no bounds and ensures your time here is intensely enjoyable! Sachiko-san’s skillfully prepared meals will make you feel good. They are a specialty of the guesthouse.

Shoei and Sachiko Taguchi make a perfect couple and will give you a lively welcome when you arrive. This guesthouse is especially popular with students who come here on study trips.

Students who have done agricultural activities here came back to Kamado again after a few months or even after a few years. There are some family groups who have stayed here and now keep in contact and socialize together as whole households. The greatest attraction of this guesthouse is the opportunity to spend time with the two owners.

Message from the owner

There are a number of farm inns around Lake Tazawa, the deepest lake in Japan. We opened on January 9, 2010, as a place where you can stay and experience livestock farming. This guesthouse is full of items collected by my husband as a hobby and has a unique nostalgic atmosphere developed over many years.

For meals, we serve dishes such as char salt-baked over charcoal or grilled rice balls, and invite you to sit round the “irori” (hearth) to eat. Please enjoy a “taste of home” unique to the countryside.

The motto of Kamado is “If you come here once, you will want to come back again and again”. We treat the animals here just like our family, just as we do the guests who come to stay. As livestock farmers we lead very busy lives, but we always have time to offer our utmost heartfelt hospitality to visitors who come here to enjoy this experience.
