My husband and I stayed 10 restful, although rainy, days in this lovely comfortable guesthouse overlooking Kabira Bay.

Food was good, quite clean, setting ok but room is extremely small and air cond 100 yens for one hour. But above all, if you are a westerner (europe or us), avoid maetakaya !!! You have to pay in advance (whereas Japenese people don't), and the woman in charge keeps thinking that you will go away and gets intrusive... Well... More
