We had a nice stay in Miyama after the busy city life in Tokyo and Kyoto. Nice traditional house with modern bathrooms. We loved the walk in the woods to pick some herbs for dinner and to sleep on the futons with very comfortable bedding. Very friendly and fun family that took great care of us. Not to far from Kyoto and easy to find with gps and some help from the staff. You can bring your own dinner or cook together with some ladies like we did. We don't speak or understand any Japanese but that was no problem at all. If you have an extra day in Kyoto I can recommend you to go out in countryside and stay in an old traditional house.
The only negative is that it is bit close to the road, but we sleept very well anyway.
