Storehouse Inn Aoyagi Book your trip
Enjoy local cuisine and a relaxing space with a Kura

Our small farmhouse inn is located in a farming village along the Mogami River, a short distance from Murayama City town.
The guest room is situated in an old Japanese storehouse, and is limited to one group (max. 5 people) a day. Try farming in the nearby fields, or take a walk in our nature-rich neighborhood. We can also show you the sites in the city.
The picturesque countryside that extends outside our inn is sure to refresh your soul.
We hope you’ll try local cuisine including Murayama’s soul food “Natto Mochi”.

The large house, garden in front of it, and kura tell the history of this farm.
