I couldn't believe this type of Minshuku even existed in Japan. 1, It was run by an elderly couple which is fine but it was way understaffed. 2. Dirtiest toilet I have ever been to in Japan. 3. The whole room/hotel stinks. 4. Rude Only good about this minshuku is super close to the train station.

I spent one night in this "hotel" on May 24, 2014. Just terrible ! By Japanese standards, even worse ! Living in Japan for 2 years and knowing the country for many more years, I have been in other same types of minshuku (family type or B&B Japanese hotels) which were as old or older but this one is the...

My friend booked me into this ryokan because she wanted me to have the experience of staying in one. Unfortunately, it was not the nicest place I stayed in at Japan and I am sure there are better options. The ryokan is conveniently located above the train station, however, this also means that one gets to hear the trains passing... More

I booked into this hostel after the recommendation of my flatmate, who stayed Xmas 2010. After reading a few of the reviews on here, we had another booking confirmed and cancelled this booking, Japannet.com takes 25% of your booking if you cancel between 7-14days. Very steep. This mean over £30 cancellation when I cancelled 14days from checking in. Beware.

We were very hesitant to visit this ryokan after reading some of the reviews, but now, after staying there, I feel that that I have to adjust a bit. The ryokan is situated right behind the Yumato Station, up the hill, a 5min walk. If you arrive at night or late afternoon, a series of paper lanterns is lit along... More

Living in Japan and being a fan of cheap minshuku, I dismissed the warnings of the other reviewers, much to my regret. I don't mind a common toilet and sink, but no hot water (even in the bath)? No western toilets (nevermind a shower toilet)? The floor of our room was so flimsy I thought I would fall through. We... More
