The town of Kabe is forty minutes by JR Kabe Line from Hiroshima station.
During the Sengoku (warring states) Period (1467-1615), the area was bustling as a logistics hub as it is located between the administrative center of Hiroshima and the San’in region. The transportation by boats which sailed along the Ota River also brought a big fortune. Still today the historical atmosphere is well preserved. Minpaku Sakae is in such a town.
The guests have an opportunity to take a guided tour to an aged temple and a café renovated from a 150 year old traditional house in the historical quarter. With a prior reservation, you can watch martial arts, make Japanese confections and learn Japanese cooking, calligraphy and the paper craft of origami.
Moreover, spending a relaxing time with the owners, Mr.and Mrs.Kato, will be a wonderful memory.
