Shimanto Riverside Hideaway is the kind of place you don’t come across often. Tucked among the mountains beside the crystal clear Shimanto River is a traditional Japanese-style guesthouse with everything you need to feel at home, like free WI-FI, a fully-equipped kitchen (for coffee!) and more.
The owner, Kenji Nakajima, moved to the Shimanto area from the bustling, fast-paced city of Tokyo after falling in love with its pristine environment. His purpose soon became to offer a guesthouse where people from all over the world could come and discover Shimanto for themselves, a hidden gem where they could relax and be at one with nature
Wake up to the wild birds singing, take an afternoon stroll across the calm Shimanto River on the Takase Chinkabashi (submersible bridge), savor the authentic tastes of Kochi like seared bonito and local sake, fall asleep under the millions of twinkling stars undisturbed by city smoke…and repeat✨
