U-RIN-AN is a property located in the heart of the Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter. This quarter preserves traditional Japanese streets and houses from Edo, Meiji, and Taisho period. In addition, Kurashiki is famous for art (e.g. Ohara Museum of Art) and folk craft.

The building of U-RIN-AN is a 100-year-old Japanese style wooden house. You can experience the traditional lifestyle of Japan.

    Great place to stay for a different type of experience from a hotel, but could be improved. Pros: - Lovely location in Kurashiki next to a canal, old style village and shrine - 5-10 min walk to Kurashiki station - Great to meet other travellers - Friendly staff who know a bit of English - Overall good vibe Cons: - Only one bathroom with no lock, quite basic, shower queue and times - No security for your belongings - You have to move your luggage every day - You can hear everything
