This little house is very Japanese. I stayed at female dormitory for 3 nights and I enjoyed in tatami style of bed, very comfy. However, there is only one shower for all guests and this is very busy at night.

Basically I was looking for a place which I can have a good rest but I was wrong. However, I don't blame the guest house but...

The whole guest house is clean included the public space, and the location is very near to JR Bishoen station - even though it'a little bit hard...

Highly recommend this place! Supposed the check in time is before 9PM but I arrived 9:45PM. The staff welcomed me with warm smile and showed me around the whole house.
