Invitation to MATCHA Readers: Spend the Night at a Kid-Friendly Lodging in Japan
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in fewer people visiting Japan's regions. However, the charms that draw so many visitors to these destinations and the high-quality accommodations found throughout Japan have not changed.
Once it is safe to travel again, how about enjoying a stay at one of Japan's lovely accommodations? In this article, we introduce two children-friendly lodgings that invite MATCHA readers to enjoy a free stay anytime until August 2022! Check the end of this article for details on how to apply.

Chikura Tsunagu Hotel is the perfect place for families wanting to enjoy nature and the outdoors. The hotel is located in an area surrounded by the extensive seas and primeval woodlands of Minamiboso, Chiba Prefecture.
This brand-new hotel opened in 2019 as a place for parents and their children to experience local nature and culture first-hand. It’s located in Chikuracho, a two-hour drive from Tokyo via the Aqua-Line Expressway.

The hotel’s vast grounds are home to three types of guestrooms: standard (max. 4 people, 8 rooms), family (max. 14 people, 2 rooms), and tent (max. 4 people, 5 rooms). The tent is especially popular as it allows guests to sleep outside, in the heart of nature, while enjoying the salty breeze, the sounds of the waves, and the starry night sky of Minamiboso.

Message from The Canvas Hayama Park
“Minamo is a great choice for those with children. In the spacious living area, you’ll find a bouldering space where you can return to your childhood while playing with your kids.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a wide array of cookware and utensils. Guests can enjoy cooking with the entire family after purchasing a selection of fresh, local ingredients."
"You won’t spot televisions in our villas. Instead of watching TV, our guests can take their time to have fun conversations with their children while enjoying their stay in Hayama with all five senses.”
