Rejoice in the rustic beauty.

“Sabi” is an aesthetic sense of Japanese culture, probably better known as part of the concept, wabi-sabi.  The characteristic of this concept can be expressed as “rustic beauty” in English.  The concept of “sabi” places a high value on the richness and charm resulting from the aging process.  The tarnished galvanized sheets on Sabino House’s exterior walls, the aged ceiling beam, and the rustic steel covered with mill scale—all of which are the embodiment of this aesthetic value.

Relax in this space - embellished with these components seasoned by the gift of time - and feast your eyes on the vista of rustling maple leaves.

By cherishing these moments Sabino House offers, you will be able to savor this rustic charm.

There are two beds in the main bedroom. Soft light penetrates from the window on the pillow side, ensuring a pleasant morning.
You can use the Japanese-style room freely. You can read books or work while watching a maple swaying in the wind. If you lay out a futon, it can accommodate up to three more people.
A living room with a counter kitchen. It's a perfect place to have a meal and chat over coffee.
A kitchen with an IH heater where you can cook for yourself. The kitchen is large enough to show your cooking skills with local ingredients.
The house is fully equipped with microwave oven, refrigerator, electric kettle, espresso machine, tableware and cutlery. You can stay comfortably even if you stay for several nights.
The house is equipped with a large-capacity washing and drying machine. Complementary aundry detergent and softner are also available.
The amenities are by Leaf & Botanics. Guests will enjoy soothing fragrance emitted from 100% plant-based natural essential oils.
All the towels at Sabino House are made in Imabari.
The back of the Sabino House: it is as if a forest is overflowing from the inside. Combined with the look of the galvanized sheet iron on the outside, it has a more rustic look.
Enjoy freshly baked bread, seasonal soup, and fresh salad for breakfast, curated from bakeries in Kyoto. Reservation required.
