​About Utage

Usa-cho is a small fisherman town, located about 20km west from central Kochi city.

​I have to be up front, there is not much touristic sites, but they still maintain good-old japanese local lifestyle.

My goal is for you to feel welcomed and just enjoy the japanese local life. 

If you are looking for the new adventure which you cannot experience with the package tours, this hostel is for you!I am looking forward to meeting you :)!

I would love to get to know you rather than just treat you as a guest so please let me know what you would like to do while you stay with us!

This hostel put values on interacting with locals, feel the atmosphere of Japanese small town and experience new adventures.

Therefore, if you are just looking for a quiet place to stay, you might want to reconsider staying at Utage!! :)
