The owner, Noriko-san, was very funny and warm. In spite of the language barrier (we can speak very minimal Japanese) she tried very hard to convey her stories and understand ours. She exhibited all what you would expect of country living. Noriko-san made the stay memorable.
Food was cooked over an open Japanese style cooking pit and of local origin and quite plentiful. If you are a lover of country style Japanese food, You'll love this.
We went in February so it was very cold but to help keep us warm, she and her husband provided us with separate heated foot warmers to keep under covers in the futon bedding. We forgot the Japanese name for it. I think it may be battery powered? In all our travels in Japan, this was the first time we were introduced to this item.
The inn is located well within walking distance of the bus stop since the town of Ainokura is very small.
There is no hot spring bath, but because there were only two us, we had the bath to ourselves.
