We stayed during some of the heaviest snow falls across the Tohoku area. Outside, the landscape was quite harsh with wind and snow driven across the lake. Our room, with a loft bedroom and floor to ceiling picture windows, provided us with warm and comfortable respite. The proproetors, Tatsuya and Yuri, both speak excellent English and have created a unique... More

The great taste underlying everything in this establishment is unquestionable. Music, attention to detail in amenities. Yuri's cooking is unique and something to look forward to daily. Good location right on the lake shore and within easy walking distance to Tazawako bus station. Great spot to get away from it all for some time.

My husband and I visited Tazawako in May 2013. We loved our stay at That Sounds Good- it rained the whole time we were there unfortunately but it is such a nice cosy place that it didn't matter. The owners gave us lifts to and from the bus stop several times (when we arrived and left, and also when we... More

We have been in this beautiful stay during two travels. It's a nice wooden building on the side of Tazawako lake. The cafe is a jazz club, with a grandpiano and several other instruments. I play the piano and that's why we picked up the place at a first glance. It's easy to reach by shinkansen and the area has... More

We were expecting something different with this cafe + Inn, but were delighted at how modern the facilities were and how helpful the owners were. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for them. They picked us up from the bus stop when we arrived and left and also when we caught the bus to Nyuto Onsen. The owners speak excellent... More
