You can't go wrong with Guesthouse Sakuraya. The owner, Kayoko, has painstakingly restored the 150 year old house, and the result is beautiful rooms with modern conveniences. Bathrooms are separate (and Western style), but with two showers shared by three rooms, I never had to wait. Japanese style breakfasts are terrific (while i was there Kayoko made miso soup, grilled salmon, rice, pickles and a variety of fresh vegetables).
Only downside... with only three rooms she fills up fast, so make sure to book in advance!
