Good value for the money
The hotel was good. My only complaint was the bath was awful tight. Room for 3 adult males. I understand that the women's bath was larger but they didn't switch every night as I understood.

Excellent service
Traditional minshuku, good public baths with privacy. Toilets separate by gender on floors. Forgot my journal, the housekeeper came over six blocks to find me in the train station, standing in the line. Above and beyond expectations. Domoo arigatoo gozaimasu.

Private guesthouse - simple and clean
It is an easy 10min walk from the JR train station and has no 24h reception. We arrived after 10pm and everything was dark outside and inside. The owner came after about 1 min. We had to take our shoes off and stored them in an unlocked cabinet near the entrance door. The owner does not speak English. She cleaned the wheels of our suitcases before we entered. We had room 205, which is a Japanese room that is not much bigger than the two beds with firm mattresses that are in it. The entrance door is only 6ft tall but the room has a normal ceiling. The room also has a separate bathroom that does not have a high tech toilet seat as you find in other hotels. The bathroom comes with a multi-use bottle of shampoo, liquid soap and a bottle of hand sanitizer. Two complimentary tooth brushes with tooth paste were provided and there was no hair dryer. Hair dryers are installed in the onsens and at a public sink on the first floor. Be careful, the hot water is extremely hot! There is a notice on the bathroom door saying that bath times are from 7-9am and 4-10pm which was real inconvenient as we are early risers. The bedroom also has a flat screen TV with no English channels, a quiet and efficient A/C, a safe and a thermal can with hot water, 2 tea bags and 2 paper thin cookies. The floor is hardwood with Japanese mats throughout the guesthouse whereas the bathroom is all plastic floor, ceiling and wall panels. The hotel was supposed to have free wifi which was not working in our room.
