This is as good as it can get for a nice homely, no frill B&B you could ask for. The place/room is SPACIOUS, & incredibly well-kept, clean, everything seems to be in good condition. Owners could not really speak more than a word or two of English. But they readily tried their best with our questions/ request for help. Breakfast...

We were shown to a big room with attached toilet but No bath. The grand daughter of the minshuku spoke very good english. As there are no other women during our stay we were able to use the women's onsen exclusively. Ask for fried eggs if you don't like them raw...
