Ine Funaya Kura, boat house stay
Staying in a boat house on the sea is a rare opportunity, especially considering the Japan Heritage area of Ine has 230 boat houses, yet only a few that have been converted into accommodations. Kura is a beautiful boat house right on Ine Bay (one of UNESCO's world's most beautiful bays). The architecture features exposed beams and a lot of natural wood. A night's stay can be paired with two meals, which is highly recommended because Ine is still an active fishing village. Kura serves a variety of local seafood and locally grown produce, all of which are fresh daily. At the end of the day, watch the sunset as you soak in the old-earthenware tub, filled with natural onsen (hot spring) water.
