Guesthouse wakabaya is traditional Japanese styled with tatami mat in private rooms, Japanese paper on the wall and local wood from this Shikoku island for pillars and floors. On the other hand, the equipments and rooms are clean because the house was build in 2014 newly. We welcome you with much local tourist information.
I was born in Takamatsu in 1983 and grew up in this lovely little city. After graduating from a local high school, I moved to Osaka to go to university. There I majored in the Mongolian language and development studies. After working in Nagoya for three years, I went to Senegal in West Africa as a rural development volunteer. It was while living in a village in Senegal, getting to know the Senegalese approach to work, family life and community involvement, that I got the idea of opening a guest house in my hometown. That was the start of Wakabaya. I have backpacked all over, visiting such places as Mongolia, Ghana, Bulgaria, Tibet, and Mexico. Along the way, I stayed in many guest houses. When I got married, my wife and I continued to travel together. Now we take our children with us and enjoy exploring Asia as a family of backpackers. In 2014, we opened Wakabaya with the desire to create the kind of guesthouse we love to stay in. Ever since, we’ve enjoyed welcoming many guests from all over the world. Let us help you make the most of your visit to this fascinating part of Japan!
We stand in a residential area 5 minutes away on foot from Hanazono 花園 station along Kotoden line. Hanazono 花園is the third station from Takamatsu Chikko sta. 高松築港 by JR Takamatsu sta. 高松and it takes about one hour from JR Takamatsu sta. 高松 if you walk. Though there is no Japanese restaurant around wakabaya, you can find many in downtown nearby Kawaramachi sta. 瓦町, 15 minutes walk from here. The downtown spreads around Kawaramachi 瓦町, not JR Takamatsu 高松. You can rent a bicycle at JR Takamatsu sta.高松, Kawaramachi sta. 瓦町 and wakabaya. Bicycle makes it easier and cheaper to go to station, port, downtown, shopping, the Ritsurin Garden 栗林公園 and so on.
