This place was the most authentic experience of Japanese life we’ve encountered. The hotel is run by a lovely couple with limited English but their helpfulness and kindness completely made up for that. The breakfast setting in the traditional Gassho-style dining room is nothing short of spectacular. It made us feel like that scene had been played out exactly like that for the last few hundred years. Our room was a tatami room with paper sliding doors, exactly like you’d imagine Japan to look like! Absolutely loved it, would certainly go back.
