    Lovely, traditional Japanese place...a great place to stay, chill out with a book, socialise around the Kotatsu and let your mind wander while appreciating the garden. Out of the city but 5 minutes from the local train station so easy to use as a base

    This guesthouse was lovely. It was a nice break from the big cities. If you are looking for some quiet time then I would highly reccomend. Nice and close to the station, restaurants and convenience stores.

    Great hostel nestled in a small town southwest of Okayama. If you're like me and prefer to stay in quiet, peaceful places then you'll like this hostel. This place has good facilities and great staff. Although the hostel is not in the city of Okayama itself, it is a short walk from a train station that you can use to quickly reach the city.

    Amazing place with unbelievable atmosphere. In quiet neighborhood, with a beautiful garden. Supermarket and convenience stores are not far and the train station is very close. Definitely one of the best hostel we have visited.

    Such a wonderful place to stay! It is very traditional as it is the oldest guesthouse in the area. There is so much history here and being able to make your own traditional tatami coasters is such a fun experience. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in such an incredible space.

    Thank you so much to the staff for a brilliant stay! I made some great friends here due to the shared rooms and few people staying at the time! The whole atmosphere here is so welcoming and the very Japanese traditional style of the place is beautiful! Breakfast was great and all the futon beds are the comfiest I've had on the trip so far!

    This hostel was a lovely unexpected surprise! The location and building type (tatami mats and all) made it feel like a guesthouse. The staff were very welcoming and I enjoyed learning how to make a coaster using the igusa grass. Quite easy to get to Naoshima Island from the hostel (train and ferry). Lots of character, nice sitting room overlooking the garden. I also appreciated having a kitchen to make snacks and whatnot. No locks on doors but the main entry door is locked after 8pm.
