Named after an ancient Nara shrine where secret discussions were held that led to the unification of Japan, Tanzan offers you a similar chance to hide away from prying eyes. This large home has both traditional and modern furnishings, and includes a broad patio out front perfect for experiencing the valley surroundings. But unlike the other homes here, you can climb up the stairs to a hidden loft, where an intimate space that is perfect for your very own cozy conversation awaits. And while talking into the night, you can closely marvel at the intricate thatch-work above.
