Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have never experienced as good of hospitality in my life. I was a fool while hiking the Nakasendo trail and failed to make a reservation. They were on holiday but seeing that it was almost dark and that it was starting to rain, they took the time to make a room for me and make me dinner and breakfast. They are a beautiful kind family and really made the highlight of my trip to Japan. I am incredibly grateful for them. As for the place itself - the food was amazing, the views were breathtakingly beautiful and the room was extremely comfortable. My favorite part was the Japanese hot bath which felt amazing after a 12-mile backpacking trek. I am definitely taking the time to make a reservation here the next time i come to japan!

My husband and I visited this minshuku one one of the nights we hiked the Nakasendo trail. This minshuku far exceeded my expectations. The room was comfortable and had a beautiful view of outside. The futons were quite comfortable, and the little details like snacks and tea in the room made a big difference. The food was absolutely amazing. Each dish was prepared with great care and was presented beautifully. And everything tasted amazing. We would highly recommend to everyone!

Kazuko and her son run a really wonderful minshuku. Tsumago is of course famous as being on the Nakasendo Highway and in our experience Tsumago is lovelier (a little quieter than Magome).

We arrived by train to Nagiso and then bus. All very easier. Tsumago is tiny and Kazuko's home is very easy to find.

It's a beautiful old minshuku - everything I think we hoped for. Lovely tatami rooms. A spotless public bath. Nice yukata (which we were encouraged to go out dancing in that evening as it was Obon).

Best of all though is Kazuko and her son's hospitality. The food (shown in the photos) was absolutely amazing. A rainbow trout that was so tender you could eat the entire thing from head to tail (and we don't love fish)! You eat in a small dining room at 6pm and I think there can only ever be about 10 guests (there were 7 when we stayed).

The rooms are spotless, very comfortable and have aircon. Kuzuko will say the rooms are small but this is a very authentic minshuku and the rooms are just lovely.

We also stayed at the better known Fujioto Ryokan which is bigger, speaks better english, is arguably in a better location and we MUCH PREFERRED Kazuko's minshuku. We stayed at Gion Hatanaka in Kyoto and Bennesse House on Naoshima and Kazuko's was right up there.

Kazuko - thank you for being a lovely host. Hopefully you can come to Cambridge sometime. Very best wishes.

Daikichi is locates near the north end of Tsumago. The location is really great. You can drop your luggage there once you arrive in town ( the owner was very nice to encourage us to leave our luggage there even though our arrival was planned to veery early at 8am) and then can just basically stroll through the whole of Tsumago without missing anything, make sure you see the Carp Rock just a few steps away from the ryokan.

Daikichi has a very small entrance but are very spacious once you get in. The ryokan seemed to have go through renovation just recently, everything looks fresh and extremely clean, without losing its old Japanese family house charm. The toilet and shower facilities are all very modern high tech which I didnt expect since the town is very old and remote. There is also a onsen bath that can easily fit two people for private use. The room windows all face a very scenic view of rice field, old houses and mountain.

Dinner and breakfast are served in the upstairs dinning room. Meals are quite delicious and well presented. The owner kindly introduced every single little dish to us in English. I really liked the dinning room, as you can see many family photos of the owner family on the wall, telling a story of generations of a family living in the little town. Really beautiful in my opinion.

The owner speaks great English, very friendly without invading your privacy at all, and gave us some great recommendations we didn't know despite lots of reading of the area before the trip. Make sure you get her local knowledge.

The ryokan is family run as most of the other accommodations in town I suspect. You can hear the young kid speaking and playing sometimes (but never at night when you sleep.) And we saw the owner's mother or mother in law waving us goodbye when we were leaving. Adding extra charm to this great place.

One thing if any complain at all is that, you need to make your own bed in your room which we were happy to do but the next morning we were a little clueless if we were supposed to put it away and what to do with the pillow cases and sheets etc..

The dinner and breakfast were both excellent - very fresh and good variety including five grain rice. The dining room allowed for easy conversation with other guests. The onsen was family style with two showers and the toilets were shared. Everything was clean and the service was very accommodating. The futons were a single layer which was a bit too hard for me since I am a side sleeper. Had the same issue at other Ryokans and travelled with a small lightweight air mattress which did the trick!

we only stayed at this little Minshuku for one night on our journey through Japan, however what a delightful experience. It really is authentic but spotlessly clean ( like most of Japan) . the rooms are small there is no wardrobe , 2 hooks for hanging clother, DO not come with large suitcases, send them on to your next hotel by the very efficient baggage courier services. We used Black Cat. There are no ensuite bathroom there is one bath/shower traditional style shared by the 4 or 5?? rooms downstairs and 2 separate loos and a separate sink mirror hairdryer washing area, All of this is done outside of your room. no shoes in the Minshuku and no slippers on the tatamati flooring in the bedrooms. Absolutely amazing authentic Japanese dinner and breakfast served in "dining room" seated on the floor in Yukatas . Kazuko speaks quite good English when it comes to the food you are eating but limited for most other things. The food is genuinely local and authentic,. This place is not for the food wary, we had raw horse sashimi, fried grasshoppers , whole ( and you are instructed to eat the Whole ) fish. Its a spot for one or two nights only especially if you don't like futon sleeping ( make your own beds ) but its a paradise for experience seekers. in the evening in the local " meeting hall" there was a display of traditional drummers , so casually done but so magic, We loved this place. If you are doing the Nakasendo walk you want to start in Magome and finish here, primarily as this is a more downhill route and also Tsumago is the real deal . on the walk itself we only met 3 other people in 2 hours , amazing experience and a must do if you are touring Japan., note they only supply hand towels so take a bigger one if you intend to use the shower

We spent the first night of our Nakasendo Walk in this delightful minshuku in Tsumago. Staying in an inn with shared toilet and bath facilities was quite intimidating at first, but it actually turned out to be such a delightful experience! After a tiring hike through the Magome Pass from Magome to Tsumago, nothing could have been more wonderful than much needed rest in our tatami room with a wonderful view, one of the 5 tatami rooms. The hot bath was great for soothing aching muscles and there were enough toilets and sinks to accommodate all 10 guests in a full house. After our hot bath, we donned our yukatas and proceeded to the dining room for our beautiful kaiseki meal. Absolutely delicious! Mrs. Hara Kazuko, the owner, was such a gracious host. Her daughter-in-law, Sumie, was most charming. She even went after us in her car when she realized we took the wrong turn down hill instead of up hill, and we were more than 30 minutes away from her home!

Nothing than good about this lovely house situated at the higher side of Tsumago. The house itself is beautiful old style Japanese architecture and is an original house in this stunning old post town from the original Nakasendo trail. The moment we were welcomed by our host we felt at ease...the moment you get out of your shoes and into the slippers you are bathed in Japanese traditions. Breakfast and dinner are both spectacular; never had fried grasshopper for breakfast but I loved it. Our room was original Japanese with only a low table to serve the tea on, no seats, the bed was a thin mattress which was slightly unconfortable but hey this is how they sleep and we had to adapt to that :) The onsen in the house is really perfect you can lock it so that you really can use it privately. Ventilation by opening windows makes this an even better onsene to stay. No doubt this was the perfect spot for a sleepover in an original japanese style house !

There is nothing but good things to say about this place. The house itself is beautiful old style Japanese architecture and is an original house in this stunning old post town from the original Nakasendo trail.

This style of accommodation is a little like a traditional bed and breakfast and the family live in the home but its very big. You can expect dinner and breakfast for the price of 9000 yen per person which is pretty good value for money. They are quality meals that feature local produce and seasonal options.

The place is beautifully presented and sits at one end of the town and has views of the valley.

You have access to a spring fed, hot bath that is onsen style and fits two people. We had access to wifi as well but it was rather slow and frustrating.

The only down side I can think of other than the Internet was the futons. They were a bit thin for my size of 6'3 , 100 kg but after a long hike and a bath I still slept well.

The family themselves were really great with good English and a fantastic warmth. Three generations served us and the husband was behind the scenes cooking etc.

I would go back here - it's a lovely area to stay a night or two.

Wanted to include Tsumago and the related walking in our itinarary . This place was recommended by inside Japan Travel. We were very lucky to be the only Gusests on the night that we stayed. Its a delightfully restored japanese style guest house with modern communal bathrooms thrown in with a nice wooden hot Tub. We met three generations of the Owners family who served us Japanese food including raw horsemeat and grasshoper in a beautifully presented dinner.
Recommended!

I checked websites such as Priceline. They have this minshuku listed. We joined the self-guided tour of Oku Japan, and we were booked there.
