“Great place to stay and good location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The guest house has a great atmosphere, close to the train station that runs between Miyajima and downtown Hiroshima. Kayo is helpful and goes out of her way to ensure that guests are happy and have the information they need to get out and enjoy some activities. She introduced us to a wonderful izakaya nearby. She has a great selection of games for a night in too. I would recommend this place to anyone.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Stayed here with a mate when we went snowboarding close to hiroshima. Kayo is incredible; she helped organize our snowboard packages, played UNO with us, taught us calligraphy and was just simply an all round brilliant host. Such a comfortable stay and the place really felt like home. This place in itself makes me want to go back to Hiroshima!

I felt like I was living in a real homestay with Japanese people. Kayo sure makes her utmost to keep her guests happy. As I was the only guest on this one night I was to spend in January she made sure I am kept busy and happy. She went out of her way to teach me some origami, Japanese caligraphy as well as going out together with Hitoshi in their provate car to see Hiroshima's major sights. The place is literally a stone's throw away from the nishi-hiroshima station. Just remember to turn right into the narrow alley when you reach the community house,. This instruction is the only which is the only bit missing from the place's website. You will find the beckoning cats greeting you. Place is very clean and the owner also provides a good dinner for a small price

You are likely to end playing cards or Japanese chess against the owner... Be careful she is not.easy to beat on the latter game especially after a few glasses of sake.
