    Traditional Japanese house, over 100 years old. Owned by a young Japanese guy, whose dream is to open such a backpacker's hostel. The host is very nice, and you can meet friends from different part of the world. My wife and I spent a very good night in the lobby.

    The building is ancient but not old, with a pretty yard which I liked very much.It is near the scenes and JR station, so it is very convenient. The bed is comfortable. The kitchen offers all you need if you'd like to cooking. And, the host and hostess are friendly. As a whole, it is a great experience to live there.

    I think, nothing.

    The hostel itself is a traditional Japanese building with more than 100 years history.It is kind of unique.I love the smell of the building and the garden inside.The owner are very friendly and informative.

    Some of the facilities are old but very acceptable considering the history of the building.

    It is a very interesting experience to stay in a real Japanese guest house which is an authentic Japanese experience. Though it is a historical Japanese house, it is reasonably well maintained by the young couple and their Korean staff. They ate all very friendly. Nice garden and maintained facilities.

    Japan house does not show address playe in the front door. Better to print the map well so as to get it. They don't take credit card.

    The room is very clean, the staffs are very friendly and the house is nice.

    Since it is an old house and our room was near the common area, we hear people checking in and woods creaking when someone walks by.

    English speaking friendly staff with free bicycle for rental. the place even has a small kitchen that can be used by the guests.

    a bit difficult to find a night. the signboard is very small.

    The hosts were really nice and welcoming. And the house was typical Japanese style, absolutely beautiful. Our hosts managed to combine fancy modern equipment in a traditional Japanese tea-house, keeping the spirit of it, and yet make you feel like home. A really good surprise!

    No heater, too cold in mid night.
