Mo was such a wonderful host. She went out of her way to make my stay pleasant and to give me all the information I needed to get the best out of my stay. I really loved being in the Japanese countryside and the hike to the top of Mt Jimba was a treat, especially as Mt Fuji was in full view at the top (only on a clear day). The local onsen was a great way to soothe aching muscles after the walk and the restaurant at the baths was healthy and delicious. If you are looking for a serene and relaxing couple of days out of Tokyo I would highly recommend staying in this charming old style Japanese house in an authentic environment on the edge of a forest. Mo will make you feel very welcome.

Thank you so much for coming and stay with us, Nicky! We really appreciate your openness and enjoyed talking together. Because here is not a tourist spot as well as there are many other country sides around, we are so honored and happy to know that you enjoyed your stay :)! Again, thank you so much for coming!

Zak&Mo are so nice and considerate! They even offerd so much useful information before we arrive, we two people spent two days in Zak&Mo's house, Mo can speak English very well and the Japanese style house is terrific without doubts! We climbed the Mt.Jimba nearby whose peak was covered with snow and you can see the Fuji.Mt and even Tokyo on it!! (The path is kind of tough, but it's totally worthy to experience ) The Enviroment of the house is extremely good, it's tidy and cosy. Equipments are all in readness and Mo even provided a hot water buttle to warm the bed! We had a wonderful time while staying in Zak&Mo's house and really hope that someday they went to China and I can meet them again!

Response from Mo:
It was our pleasure to host you two over the weekend! As this area is not a famous tourist spot that it must had been quite inconvenient for you, but we are so touched by your free soul and open mind that you kindly accepted and enjoyed the nature and environment here as they are. It was a great time of sharing stories as well. We would love to see you again!

Zak and Mo are very responsive and kind. They prepared everything I needed, including a vinyl sheet to cover the front glass of my car, to prevent it from being covered with frost. The house seems an ordinary Japanese style rural house, but its inside is partly renewed, though essential features that make us feel living in a traditional Japanese house still remain. The location might be a bit difficult to find, especially at night, and I actually passed it once, even though the host was standing in front of it.

とても静かな場所にあり、ゆっくりのんびりしたい方にオススメです。 家の中はよく手入れされており、清潔でありながら、THE日本家屋といった趣と味わいがあります。 エリア周辺はあまり飲食店などはなかったですが、事前にご案内いただけていたので、高尾駅で夕食の買い出しをして、チェックイン後はのんびり過ごしました。 wi-fiもあり、不便することはありませんが、テレビなどはないので、静かな空間で読書などのんびり過ごしたい方にはピッタリだと思います。 飼われていた猫ちゃんがとっても人懐こく、かわいくて癒されました!

Hi, we are Zak&Mo. We have met wonderful people and received heart-warming hospitality as travelers. To return our gratitude, we opened this place. We love nature, art, and collecting children's picture books from around the world. Mo does farming, so we would love to cook together Japanese breakfast with our pesticide free organic fresh vegetables if you are interested. (in winter or when no home grown vegies available, we'll do it with neighbors' fresh vegetables :).
