ICHI THE STORY
壱 THE HOSTEL was founded in August 2019 by at Teramae, beloved local enterprise of Hiwasa.
The hostel itself was originally a traditional style Japanese house, but we took it apart and renovated it completely by hand.
Nothing is left of the original structure apart from the basement.
Throughout this process, from roof to flooring, wall to wall, corner to corner, we made it our mission to build our hostel with our guests’ comfort and ease in mind.
It was a true labour of love, but as long as you enjoy your stay at 壱 THE HOSTEL, it was all worth the effort!
