A different world where you can drive by car from the hotel about 50 minutes by car ... That's "Ine fishermen’s houses"
Ine Bay is an unusual natural south port facing the south side of the Sea of Japan, and in the gap between the waves quiet ocean and silent mountains, there are quietly unusual architectural style Funaya (boat house) houses lined up.
As it is built around the surface of the sea, it has become a landscape as if the house is floating in the sea. In 2005, it was selected as a Important Preservation Districts for Groups of Traditional Buildings in Japan in a fishing village.
The first floor is a boat garage that opened a big mouth towards the sea, the second floor is a living room as a secondary life place.In some cases it is also used for guest rooms in the inn and travelers overnight can enjoy the atmosphere while listening to the sound of ripples.
Although I visited for the first time, it is full of nostalgic feelings as if I had returned home after the morning.
