Hello, I'm Ryo Uchiyama! (内山涼)
I enjoy surfing and building my own house.


Since 2003, I have been living in the small city of Asahi in Chiba prefecture, Japan.


At that time, I started surfing and making my own two-storey house with shipping containers and wood. Going DIY offers lots of freedom. My house continues to change through the years!

My place is now also a great, laid-back accommodation for guests from around the world. There is a wood-burning stove, lots of comfortable free space and everything you need.

My cosy self-built house is a 5-min walk from the Iioka surf point and beach, where you can surf the Pacific Ocean. 


Surfers, solo travelers, couples and nature-lovers are very welcome. Let's enjoy!

There are 2 ways to get to my place:

  1. Take a JR train to Asahi Station (Chiba). It is 10 mins by car from my house and I can pick you up anytime.

  2. Narita Airport is 1 hour by car from my house. I can pick you up for a small fee of ¥4,000 or US$40.

I can also drive you to Asahi Station or Narita Airport as you head to your next destination. The same from the above applies.
