I was so lucky to stay in this delightful Minshuku. I was greeted with a very friendly warm welcome. I had a problem with the internet and this was sorted out very quickly. My room overlooked their pond, garden and the river. In the middle of the night you could hear a gentle 'swish' of the river which was very relaxing. The dinner and breakfast were absolutely superb with the food either being from the family's garden or local produce. After dinner we were (2 other guests staying as well) serenaded with beautiful songs, and wow did he have a great voice. He even took me to the nearest train station the next morning so that I did not miss it.
