I lived in Zentra’s guest house for about a year, and I studied yoga with Mario and Noriko for even longer than that! I would highly recommend these share houses, especially to any foreigners looking for an immersive experience in Japan. Instead of being surrounded by busy streets and city life, you’ll find yourself in a cute little neighborhood that almost feels like a village. Every morning you’ll wake up in peace, instead of honking horns. You’ll see the neighbors tending to their gardens. And you’ll enjoy all the nature: walks and bike-rides along the sea, as well as hiking in the mountains.
The houses are very comfortable, the grocery store was super convenient, and the cooking and laundry facilities in the share houses worked perfectly!
For anyone looking to deepen their yoga practice, this is the best way to immerse yourself in a retreat-like atmosphere.
And the best part of all: you’ll be in the good hands of Mario and Noriko. They always spoil their guests to make sure you feel MOST comfortable.
Thank you to Mario and Noriko - I cannot wait to come back one day!
