Guest rooms are laid out in traditional Japanese style with wood-paneled ceilings and tatami wovens straw flooring. The Japanese skill of feng sui is apparent with a tidy simplicity which makes the rooms feel more spacious than a hotel room. At night guest lay out thier futon mattress with a luxurious down duvet to keep the cold out. Like a ryokan but at the best price in town!

We have a well-equipped kitchen that will help your money go a little further in Japan. Maybe you could pick up some local cooking tips and we are always looking out for new dishes from guests - please teach us! The neighboring common room has plenty of books, tourist pamplets and travel guides.

Please enjoy the variety of our Japanese garden with sports some beautiful colors in spring and autumn.
