Liked: It felt like a home away from home. It was a very traditional old Japanese house. Comfortable and inviting. Kitchen to use and their staff were very nice, expecially Mami!! Location is wonderful, so close to Matsumoto Castle (you can see the castle from the window). Very laid back cosy place and I enjoyed my time there.

Disliked: I was happy with everything. Other travellers may want to consider that there are no lockers or locks on doors (except the bathroom). I did not find this a problem -- Japan is very safe. The bathroom and hall was very cold during the night in the cold season, but you are in them only short amounts of time. I was happy there.
