This guesthouse is 5 min walk from the JR station and is run by a very nice lady. The place is Japanese style, rooms ac and communal areas spotless. There is a good convenience store opposite. In it's class of hotel I've given it five stars..it's obviously not a luxury establishment. If you are the type to want a western style room , with identikit features and multiple restaurants/ big atrium that could be anywhere in the world then this is not for you but if you want to really experience true japan properly with local hospitality and tips at reasonable price then I recommend.
