Hotel Folkloro has for years delivered simple comforts and excellent service, a notable find in Towa, a rural little farm village. The hotel is a little getaway right off the highway and a walk from the local train station, which is an easy 10-15 minutes' ride from the Tohoku shinkansen line. A great location for visiting anywhere in Tsuchizawa (the little village, with one lovely coffee shop, local pub, local restaurant, farm shops, etc.) and the museums in the area. I have stayed several times over the past dozen years, and I frequently visited the adjacent hot springs for years before that. Hotel Folkloro is a small rural hotel (now incorporated into a small chain), but delivers bigger town quality service and is very well maintained. The rooms are neatly done and have all necessary elements, but they are fairly basic and some can be narrow -- at least, narrower than my expectations in a farm village where space shouldn't come at a huge premium. Bathrooms feel cramped, but the whole point is to ignore the tub, put on the robe & slippers, and go soak the hot springs down the hall. Also, they have REALLY fast internet if you connect by ethernet cable in the lobby, where there are little desks. I've done serious work from there... in a robe. I can't remember how good the wifi is. The little local touches and public areas are what stand out to me: good personalised service, clean and neat everything, natural wood and minimalist toned interior design, two hilarious pet goats in a little fenced area in the back, super comfy couches to melt into and read a book around windows overlooking simple manicured landscaping and rice fields, quiet and clean air and nature all around, a little shop with delicious high-quality local snacks like ice cream from the nearby dairy and handmade gifts, a lovely fresh breakfast buffet run by the same the husband & wife for many years, a surprisingly extensive menu and nice little bar stocking local beer... and of course, down the hallway (which itself is not so nice... just a covered walkway, chilly in cold seasons) there is the hot springs around which the hotel was built. An authentic local experience, it's small but well maintained, the water is excellent (and considered medicinal), and you'll be alongside local residents just coming in for a morning bath. Women and men alternate sides, and the rotenburu outdoor area is especially nice in the winter when the snow is falling. The masseur in residence is also excellent. (The food at the restaurant in the hot springs is not great... just go back to the hotel, or across the parking lot there is a small freestanding restaurant offering locally sourced food.)
