<Okushiri Guest House ~Imacoco~>

It is only two minutes on foot to the closest hot-spring from our guest house. It commands a beautiful view of the sunset. Our motto is “to treasure our meeting.”

<About “imacoco”>

We are here together miraculously by accident now! Ima means “now”, and coco means “here.” We will become aware of the miracle of sharing a time and space by slowing down. We are here now, not in the past, not in the future. We are here now (imacoco) together!

<Guest House>

This guest-house is run by a family. We will welcome you as another family member of ours. You can just use this place as a place to stay, but I hope you will share some work by preparing tables for suppers and doing dishes after the supper. We would like to create a community where everybody communicates with everybody else.
