Property Information:

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.

Every day between 6:30pm and 7pm we get together in our common area where we check in new guests and have some quality time to meet and interact with other guests. We create a space where they can introduce themselves, get to know each other and create long lasting friendships.
It is our goal to provide this unique encountering so that our guests can take a memorable experience back home

The building of U-RIN-AN is a 100-year-old Japanese style wooden house. You can experience the traditional lifestyle of Japan.
During the day U-RIN-AN operates as a café serving delicious light meals and desserts and at night it turns into a guesthouse. Guests staying longer than 1 day can leave their belongings in a secure common area at the property.

    It was fun staying there, the staff are very kind. It's a very quiet part of town so not too busy which is nice. The guesthouse has multiple uses during the day though so it was often crowded inside at all hours, there's no air conditioning so it was wicked hot. Decent spot but I probably won't stay there again unless I know Japanese.
