If you're trying to get a flavor for old Japan, a stay at Iseya is a must. We were the only westerners at this lovely inn. Our room looked onto a garden (ask for a room in the building behind the garden). The food was delicious and they were very friendly and helpful (even speaking some English). While not the... More

In November we walked a few parts of the Nakasendo Trail - the old post route between Edo and Kyoto.Before crossing the Torji Pass we stayed at Narai for one night.

We stayed one night at this very pleasant and well-situated minshuku. The room and the communal facilities were very clean and the family-style shared baths were very nice ones. The food was excellent. Some English is spoken and the owner is friendly and helpful.

My wife and I stayed at the Iseya during a trip to Narai. Had not stayed at a minshuku before and it was a contrast to a ryokan. The Iseya was welcoming, and we were given a good orientation to the routines of the minshuku. Our room was a six mat room, which is small, but typical of a minshuku.... More

We had a very pleasant stay, the owners made us feel so welcome and a party of Japanese weekenders made a fuss of us as well. The meals were excellant and the village itself was very peaceful. Don't miss it!
