#1 of 3 Speciality lodging in Matsushima-machi
Uchi is a private house newly built in March 2016 in Matsushima to cater the rising popularity of accommodations with local flavor. As the name "Uchi" refers to a private home in Japanese, you will always be treated as a member of our family, not as a tourist or a hotel guest. The location of our house is perfect for sightseeing, 2 min walk to the Zuiganji temple, 7 min walk from the Station.

We stayed for two nights in Eijus wonderful guesthouse. It is located in a small lane beside the main road and you can walk to every important sight. The best thing about this guesthouse is the host Eiju. He is very friendly and you can chat and chat and chat.

We had the best overnight stay here in Matsushima, I wish we could’ve stayed longer. Eiju was one of the best hosts I have ever come across on my travels. He speaks English very well and is so helpful with his recommendations of what to do while staying in Matsushima. He offers coffee/tea and bread in the morning and has a little bar as well which is a good way to interact with the other guests in the house and his wife is super lovely! And such a beautiful place to stay. We will be coming back again :)

The guesthouse is right in the middle of sight-seeing Matsushima. It is very clean, and you can see the taste of the host, who is also extremely friendly. Like most other places in Japan, shops in Matsushima are closed at 5pm, and only a few restaurants are open for dinner.

A very nice place, at the tourist area but in a quiet street. Can get everything in walking distance. Owner was friendly. Room was a bit small but not a big deal. Bathroom and toilet were super clean.

I really like the simple and purposeful design of this place. And the owner is so kind, friendly and informative. Bathrooms are clean and well set-up. Remember to bring a towel. Also, check out the Zen Gallery and Albert Cafe hidden away among the residential houses just a short walk up the street.
