Gojo guesthouse was my favorite guesthouse while traveling Japan. The place has a very special atmosphere, warm and welcoming, and is very beautiful. I didn’t mind the thin walls, the noise is no problem when you have earplugs. I slept so well on the tatami mattes. The staff has family vibes, which I really enjoyed - and they serve great coffee and food. Thank you! I hope I will see you again. 🤍🦋

Felt the showers and bathroom areas could be cleaner. There's also no air con in the hallways, so it was quite unpleasant during summer humidity. The air con in the rooms were not the most effective, likely because there's no insulation in the older wooden style property. Overall a decent stay, the staff was also very nice and quite helpful.
