The Fukiya International Villa has been renamed Eleven Village. At right is a poster showing the couple who operate it, the Tagawas, who moved from urban life and jobs in Osaka to this rural setting because they thought it would be a better environment to raise their son. The poster is for an organization that helps people do what they did.

The villa is exactly the same, except that at present you enter not from the front entrance but from the rear of the villa. Pricing is similar, especially if you stay two or more nights. And Eleven Village also offers good quality vegetarian meals (which is very nice, since there’s less food available for purchase in Fukiya than I’d remembered). Former villa visitors will be very happy to see that the fireplace and the lovely bath with its nearly three story high ceiling (below left) are also exactly the same.



The view from the villa entrance is lovely and just as peaceful as it looks.
