店長很耐心地給客人介紹周圍情況,比如飯店,旅遊景點等,很貼心。 The guesthouse manager is an excellent host. Before checking in, he will provide a very detailed introduction about sightseeings, resturants, ect around his guesthouse with a hand drawing map. The guesthouse is very cleaning and tidy. Very quiet place and good sleep. price with a better value

Host were open to share places to visit, local restaurants, where to take photos and how to move around. There is a great restaurant near the guest house serving horse sashimi. Super yummy food at great prices. Only speak Japanese, but can still order easily. Bicycles were available for use (free for a period of time) to explore the town.

Jakensan, the manager of the place was amazingly helpful. He welcomed us with some tea, gave us a lot of information about the area, and took us in his own car to see some fireflies in a nearby river. This was magic. I've never been to any other place in Aso, but if I ever go back there, I will...

It's a very nice guest house in the traditional style. The stuff is very young, very friendly and very helpful, when you check in, you'll get an instruction about the whole town! And if you're there at the right time, you can have a delicious, funny and just awesome barbeque for just 500 yen! Don't miss it!

“We stayed in a private double room. Just to manage expectations if this is your first stay in a traditional guest house - noise does travel easily in the house.”

“We had one of the bigger rooms (for four persons) for us , it was more expensive but worth it.”
