We stayed in this Minshuku for one night (family of 3) and loved it. Our tatami room was very spacious and had a seating area with the short legged table and chairs. We had dinner in our yukatas and the owner gave us a lantern to walk through the old city at night afterwards. It feels like you were transported back in time by 200 years. The Minshuku is really peaceful and the only sound you here is that of the big fish splashing in the pond in the middle of the houses. The ofuro (hot bath) was very nice, too.

1. Location: It is located about a 2-minute walk from the main stretch of Tsumago historic street. Although the shops closed early when I was there, being winter, this is about as good a location there is if you are staying in a ryokan in the area, I guess. It is a bit away from the train station, but can be reached by bus in about 10 minutes. The bus stop (with infrequent bus services) is nearby, though. 2. Room: Lovely. It is Japanese-style and sleep is futon-style. There is no en-suite bathroom or toilet, though. But this is part of the experience of staying in a ryokan, I guess. Wifi is available; just ask for the password. It was cold when I was there but the room was nicely heated. 3. Amenities: The accompanying kaiseki dinner and breakfast was excellent! Staying in an old house makes it such a lovely part of the experience of visiting these parts. 4. Staff: There was only 1 person running the whole show when I was there. However, since we were the only guests, I never felt under-served. Communication in English is possible, with a little difficulty. But he made for a lovely host, completing a wonderful trip there.

We stayed for a night after our walk from Magome. The owner was able to communicate well in english and explain the amenities that the Ryokan has. The Ryokan is easy to find and near to the tourist information center. The Ryokan is family owned and has a long edo history. The current owner is the 9th generation. The shared bath is separated by gender, but we reached early and was able to enjoy the bath alone. They helped make futon while we were having our dinner. The dinner is simple but delicious with great effort made by the owner and family to ensure our stay was memorable. Booking was made through Travel Arrange Japan.

Very nice rooms. Traditional tatami / futon bedding. Good facilities, traditional for a ryokan (shared bath / shower / sinks). Food was terrific, again traditional Japanese. Dinner and breakfast were included and while we were there, featured lots of fish and vegetables. Payment is cash only. To book we used the site JapaneseGuesthouses . com. Seemed kind of dodgy at first but it is an agency that helps English speakers book ryokans, most of which don’t have online booking, and we had no problems with our reservation.

We visited Magome to Tsumago and found this Matsushiroya Inn. It is quite well known by Samurai Movie setting. Over 200 yrs old history and such an authentic wooden architect Inn, the warmest hospitality by 9th generation Mr. Matsushiro. Special place to stay, definitely we would love to stay Matsushiroya again.
