“Fantastic minshuku experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2012

Make sure you get a Japanese room, fantastic value for money. The owners are wonderful, don't speak much Emglish but are incredibly helpful. 5 minutes walk to town, great location. Handy hint - western toilets are located on the ground floor!

My partner is 6'4 and couldn't fit through the door ways!!
Apart from that for what you pay it is good value. We did expect a tatami room but got given a western style room with 2 single beds placed head to head in a very small room. I think because we are westerners they assumed thats what we wanted.
Good enough for sleeping and that's about it. It was also very cold in the whole place but once you got the room's heater cranking you're ok.
The bathrooms are shared with other stayers - female and male separate. You can run a hot bath if you want.
Only squat toilets available which is fun in the middle of the night if you have to get out of your warm bed and go down the freezing corridor to get there!
I think this place is suited to people travelling on business or alone on a budget. Not such a romantic stop!
Not such a far walk from everything though.
