Accommodations for budget travelers visiting Itoshima are few and far in between, but for those interested in experiencing a stay at a Japanese home, Ito-yui is for you. Located within a quiet cluster of homes near rice fields, it’s just 20 minutes on foot from Hatae Station, and just minutes from Itoshima’s famous Ito Sai Sai farmers’ market. The 100-year-old home was remodeled several times but still has that grandma’s home vibe. Sleep on a futon on tatami mats. Enjoy a Japanese style bath and inner garden, and cook your own meals using fresh Itoshima produce!
