“Surprisingly modern mishuku with lovely feel and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2011

I stayed at this minshuku for one night only with 3 other friends. We had booked one room for us but on arrival were told that we were being given two separate rooms because one might be a bit small; the price was the same. The whole place has wooden flooring and we slept on very comfortable futons. There was nowhere else to sit in the rooms other than on the floor; the main living/dining area had low tables where everyone sat on the floor, on rugs with cushions. This was fine for us but may be too traditional for some. The bathroom had the normal shower/washing area plus reasonable size bath.

The location of the minshuku is a way from both ports but very convenient if you are planning on visiting YakusugiLand, using the Arakawa trail to hike to Jomonsugi, the Onoaida trail, or for visiting the outdoor seaside onsens. It is located on the main road that circles the island, so could be reached easily by bus. Noise from the road or other guests was not any problem.

The place had a very welcoming feel; the family who run the place provided great service. However they do not speak English, so be aware of that if you are a non-Japanese speaker.

Based on other reviews on tripadvisor, we elected to have both dinner and breakfast at this place and were not disappointed -- dinner was a large selection of delicious Japanese foods with a modern twist, including the local specialty: flying fish sashimi. The Japanese-style breakfast was also delicious.

I would definitely stay at this place again and recommend it to others.
