This small family-run pension has been my wife's and my 'go to' spot ever since we got married, and we must have returned there over a dozen times. We've taken friends, family, even students, and they've all been blown away by it. The location is superb, with Mt Aso towering in the background, and the quaint township of Takamori is close by. The family who run it always welcome us warmly, and we've become good friends over the years as our children have grown together. The building is warm and homely, with a large communal area and comfortable rooms. There are two large baths which are filled with onsen-water... very relaxing after a day's driving.
Best of all is the food, which is astounding. Mostly made from local produce, the mix of tastes always astounds, and nobody ever leaves hungry.
About our only complaint is the beds, which are rock-hard, so be prepared to ache a bit in the morning.
Any time of the year is good. We've been in winter to celebrate Christmas in the snow, and in summer to escape the city heat.
