Katsume is Bukeyashiki-style mansion, famous for its “Karesansui” garden, which is said to have been created in the 18th century and has been designated a “place of scenic beauty” by Miyazaki Prefecture.

The Home’s grounds, covering roughly 1100㎡ and enclosed within wooden and “Ishigaki” walls, can be entered through a traditional stone gate that faces the road running south of the Home. While the original beauty of the Home remains intact in its ceilings, ornamentations and more, it has also been retrofitted with luxuries such as a large “Koyamaki” bathtub and plush lounge chairs on the “engawa” from where guests can enjoy their very own “Karensansui” garden.

Katsume is located right off the “Main Merchant Street” and is a short stroll from all of Obi’s sites, and has on-site parking if you are exploring Kyushu by car.

We have a outdoor private sauna for guests only.
Castle town view sauna is located on a hill.
You can experience the best in the outdoor deck where you can see the castle town of Obi lined with samurai residences.
*The sauna is 3,300 yen tax included for 1 person, and you can use it for 2 hours for 1 frame.
