! absolutely loved my stay here. The food and service was amazing, it's right next to the cemetery, and getting to see the morning ritual was an awesome experience.

I can’t really add much beyond what others have already said. The futon was strangely the most comfortable bed I have had in Japanese across five trips. It got cold overnight and I had to consult the room binder to figure out how to work the heater.
