3 weeks in Japan and this was one of my favorite places we stayed!
The location is superb - walkable to all the sites, cafe & convenience store at the corner, close to the pedestrian shopping area and a 15 minute walk to Nagarekawa. It's close to one of the tram stops too, but we just took the taxi from the train station with our luggage and walked everywhere once we were settled. If you prefer taxis, there is also a taxi stop about 2 blocks away.
The owner is very sweet. She immediately took us to our room and served us tea and cookies - she took care of the check in process while we enjoyed our snacks. Plus our room was HUGE - especially by Japanese standards. It was basically two rooms turned into one, which was great considering there were only two of us...think we may have been the only guests at the time. The hallway light shines through the screen at night, but I just turned it off when we were going to bed.
Shared bathrooms, but they were nice and very clean. Shower/bath was on the first floor.
Overall - loved it! Highly recommended and definitely would stay here again.
