Great stay, Great owner and Great view
Overall, it was satisfactory for staying a night. The twin room was cozy with wide two soft beds and a balcony, which was great for having morning tea. 5 min. walk from the Towada Lake, JR bus station. Owner & Owner's family was so kind and considerate that I would like to visit again.

Fall in Yasumiya
Hotel staff is very friendly and most helpful. Onsite food is very reasonably priced and very good.Rooms are clean and efficient. It is not fancy but very nice. It is more like staying at a friend's house rather than at a hotel which creates a lovely atmosphere.
