"Pongyi" means " Buddhist monk " in the Myanmar language .

This name derives from the owner Masaki's Buddhist monk previous experience in Myanmar.

" May all people be filled with full of Joy of life "

This is the word of His Holiness Gayuna Sundima Cealo,
the high priest to whom Masaki look up as his mentor.

We are bearing this words in mind and trying to be
" I am that I am, and do what we can do for the others."

Pongyi is not a non-profit organization (NPO), but we are working almost like a volunteer. We are donating 100 yen to aid children in Asia and another 100yen to other support activities from each accommodation fee.
Furthermore, the income in the event we often held goes to the donation.

We are glad that if you could find your new 'treasure' during your stay in our guesthouse by touching 'peace' , 'awareness', 'meeting' ,'information' etc., and, even if only slightly, it will become your further energy of life from tomorrow.

There is no luxurious amenities such as a first-class hotel , but we sincerely hope
that you feel most at home with relaxing in both mind and body.
