Upon opening the door and stepping into Ieno House, you will be taken in by the unusual design of the space.
Walking through the passage to reach the tiny courtyard, you will still muse upon the wonder of the structure. Inevitably called to the upper floor, you will open the inner window of the main bedroom to reveal the origin of this inn’s name.
As Ieno House means “the house with a house,” a cabin-like structure is nested inside the main bedroom. Pillars and beams with the patina of age accentuate the ample space, creating modern harmony. This unique design makes guests feel liberated while enticing them to explore the finer details of this lodge more closely. Travelers take a journey as their heart dictates; accommodations need not follow the conventional style.
Ieno House symbolizes this unrestrictive spirit.
