Where there’s a taste of village through your stay

During the Edo period in Japan, travelers would stop by to rest at inns in posting villages.

These villages were called Shukubacho.

Kobatoya is located in one of these historical and traditional Shukubacho.

Today, Kobatoya is an inn where you can experience a shared time with a warm-hearted owner and local residents. 

At a place where it was once a resting point for travelers, you will have a stay with us, like becoming our villagers. 

The atmosphere of traditional and elegant Shukubacho, 

The time that flows as you devour them all,

And making memories with new friends…

We hope you will have a wonderful stay at Kobatoya.

About Kobatoya

Asukecho, a Shukubacho (posting villages) that bridges Mikawa and Shinshu from Edo period, is also recognized as a “road to carry salt”.

Kobatoya is located inside a beautiful village scape of Aichi prefecture’s first traditional architecture preservation district. 

Originally a restaurant loved by the villagers, it is now renovated into an inn with modern design and materials or techniques from Asuke.
