We have 2 furry friends here. One is Bruce the Beagle and the other is Pumpkin the Yorkshire terrier. Both are very friendly dogs and Bruce will probably bring his rope and ask you to play as soon as he finds you. (You can ignore them if they get too excited)
No smoking. The tea ceremony house and the garden are design and built by Miyadaiku who is a special carpenter for temple or shrine with topnotch quality material which is unreplaceable. So We appreciate your co-operation to keep the property as smoking free.
Hi I am Sachiyo and I live in Nara with my Kiwi husband Justin.
I (Sachiyo) started our B&B from October 2013 as "Horyuji B&B" in Ikaruga town, and we moved to Ikoma city in Nara in 2014.
I am a sushi instructor and mender of pottery, porcelain and glassware.
I named this place "Atelier Bee's Knees" as where the "best people" come. We are really enjoying to share the time with Airbnb guests!
Our guests are the bee's knees!
We would like you to experience special time nowhere but here.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
