An inn where you can experience traditional Japanese life.

The Taraichi-tei, which is located in the north-west of Lake Biwa, is a traditional Japanese farmhouse. It accommodates just one group per day. The house which features thick beams and the metal-tube-covered old thatch roof is a must-see. You will enjoy the beauty of ancient Japanese architecture.

This is Omochi-tsuki.

The white lump is a mochi, called rice cake in English.
