Summary: overbooking errors seem common; friendly hostess; traditional rooms light and noisy; excellent meals; only stay 1 night We spent 2 nights at Goyomon, Ainokura in early January. We had a mixed experience. Upon arrival we were told that the Inn was very busy, and so we were placed in a makeshift room which usually seemed to function as an... More

We stayed 2 nights at Goyomon. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed by our first night. When we arrived we were told to put our bags in what looked like a study/storage space. Because of the language barrier, I assumed we were just storing our bags in that room while they were cleaning/preparing our room for us. We ended up... More

My husband and I stayed one night in this lovely Gassho-style house. It was a great experience. The hostess is welcoming and helpful. The house is beautiful. The dinner and breakfast were fabulous. There were 10 guests that night and we had great conversation around the firepit. The bathroom is shared but very clean and well stocked with amenities. The... More

Goyomon is a B&B-type setup in the tiny village of Ainokura. It is a Gassho-style house and the woman who operates it is very warm and accommodating. Dinner is served around a fire pit in the main room of the house. There are (I believe) three sleeping rooms around the main room. Shower and bathroom facilities lie on the other... More

Perfect It felt like a real privilege to stay in this really beautiful old house. The welcome was warm the hostess so friendly and spoke enough english to communicate well. The food was stunning and we ate around the charcoal fire in the sitting room followed by a song from our hostess. The rooms were simple we slept so well... More

One of the most incredible experiences in Ainokura is that you are able to spend a night (and only a single one is allowed) in one of the gassho-zukuri farmhouses that are now working as minshukus. The stay includes both traditional dinner and breakfast. We chose the Goyomon house for our stay, our lovely hostess made us very welcome and... More

This minshuku is basically the hosts' traditional house. It is very basic, so don't expect fancy rooms or bathrooms. We share the bathroom with the hosts' family and its clean. The room we stayed in is clean and the futons are very comfortable. I had a very comfortable good night sleep there.. Dinner was served by the hosts and it... More

We stayed here for one night because we wanted to try to sleep in a traditional gassho house. The rooms are japanese style with tatami mats and futons and we were seated on the floor (tatami) around the central fireplace with the other guests for dinner and breakfast. The meals were tasty and we got more than enough food, but... More

We paid around JPY 9,000.- per person for dinner, night and breakfast (take the whole package because the village of Ainokura is rather small and I am not sure about other dining facilities). This Minshuku is a traditional family house where guests are using the groundfloor. The experience is wonderful if you are not too high maintenance : you are... More
