Accommodation recommendations requested.

In past visits to Japan I have stayed mostly at business class hotels clustered around the train stations. On my visit to Shikoku this fall I would like to stay at some ryokan, minshuku and shukubo in the more rural areas, especially in or near Kochi Prefecture.

If you know of an affordable ryokan, a comfortable minshuku suitable for a non-Japanese speaker, and/or a shukubo with good meditation space I would love to hear about it.

A nearby onsen or bike rental would also be great.

Thanks in advance.

Will you have a car? Rural areas require more effort to reach, especially in Shikoku.

Affordable means different things to different folks. You might want to start your search here:

Thanks for the link.

I will not be driving, relying mostly on buses and trains.

I would like to spend around 10,000 yen per night but realize I might have to go as high as 15,000 for a ryokan.
