③ Experience a real Japanese house! "Ikuno Stay 'Kosha House'"

This is a mining official building built in the Meiji period, and is an accommodation that will take you back in time. In the first year of the Meiji era, Ikuno Mine was developed as a model mine to promote the modernization of Japan. Then, the official residence ``Old Mine Employees' Quarters (Kosha-taku)'' was built as a residence for the mine employees and their families.

In order for visitors to experience life in the Meiji era, Ikuno Stay has revived the "Koushataku" Nos. 9 and 19 as lodging facilities and offers services by renting out the entire building.

"Koshataku" is No. 9 and No. 19, both of which are the oldest official residences and company residences remaining in Japan, and are designated as cultural assets of Asago City. A retro building where you can get a taste of what life was like back then.

Nostalgic daily necessities such as televisions, radios, and stereos from the mid-Showa era are on display in Kosha Housing No. 9. You can actually take a bath in the Goemon style, which is unique to Japan, and it is a very special experience.

Koshataku No. 19 is a company house that was built when the Ikuno Mine was sold to the Mitsubishi Limited Partnership Company in the late Meiji period. The Ikuno roof tiles used in Ko company housing No. 9 and No. 19 are commonly known as "red tiles" and are baked harder than ordinary roof tiles to withstand the cold climate of Ikuno, resulting in a unique brown color. I'm here.

The manager of Ikuno Stay is Mr. Nel Rehan of the Asago City Community Revitalization Volunteer. Please come and stay once to experience the special space that can only be found at Ikuno Stay "Koushataku", such as the characteristic exterior and the detailed interior.

---------From the official site-------------

More than just a place to stay.

The Ikuno Stay concept was born as a regional revitalization project with the aim of utilizing and preserving the architectural landscape and culture of Ikuno Town.

Visitors get a special and authentic Japanese experience that few others get. A stay here will have a lasting impact on the preservation and future viability of the historically significant town.
