About Brett Barleyman
Hi, I'm a long term resident of Japan (around 27 years and counting) who has moved to this piece of Japanese paradise after living in Tokyo, Osaka, Kobe etc., previously. I have studied Japanese culture extensively in Japan and New Zealand, where I was born. I love Japanese aesthetics, and have tried to incorporate what I love in your house.
Why Brett Barleyman chose Tamano
You will feel like you are actually in Japan! It is always nice to experience the culture both indoors and out when you are visiting another country. And this really is the 'country'. You can actually live alongside the locals, take a walk (or bike) through the village, up the mountain, through the bamboo groves. This, of course, is a prelude to visiting the 'art islands' of Naoshima, Teshima, and Inujima (our favorite), where you will have your eyes opened at the possibilities of combining art with architecture.
What makes this House unique
Guests love the almost complete use of natural materials in the house. The house was renovated, not only with the goal of relaxation in mind, but with my love of the Japanese aesthetic and interior design generally. Guests have fallen in love with the bed 'I couldn't get up in the morning' is a common refrain, as well as the 'air in' shower, which is (no exaggeration) the best I've ever had. The size of the house itself is a great surprise to those coming from the smaller scale accommodations of Tokyo and Kyoto.
