Stayed at B&B Pension Hakodate-mura, Hakodate in Hokkaido
The Manager is so kind and excellent in English (handsome too) . He gave a lot of suggestions. The hotel is very convinience , it’ s located in front of Kawaguchigo Station. And it’s got a lot of entertainment for you, such as internet , Kimono for take a picture, games. You can rent a bike to the lake and spend as much time as you want. It’s not too far from the hotel.

This was our first trip to Japan - a special mother - daughter 21 day vacation.To ensure that my mother had the best time in Japan. I did extensive research about Japanese manners, culture, travelling tips, and accommodation.Takayama was our first stay, thanks to the highly recommended comments by past visitors on tripadvisor.com and japan-guide.com. Minshuku Kawataniya not only offers a very good price, their service is also top-notch. The owner is very kind and considerate. Since she knew that we were going to arrive in JR Takayama station at 22:00, she had arranged her husband to pick us up so we did not need to take a taxi or walk in the dark to her place.We stayed for 4day nights and enjoyed a very exquisit and elaborated dinner course. Since my mother does not like sashimi, the chef was kind enough to make alternative arrangement for her. We stayed in the Western-style twin en suite room. It is very spacious. Enough for us to store 3mid-size luggages. Wi-fi connection is weak but they offer free computer use at the lobby. Everyday the staff changes our towels and clean our room. I did not expect such service because I had read that most minshuku does not offer such service for sure.in here . The staff keep their rooms tidy spot-less. Defintely try their ofuro.They have 2 hot spring rooms. We had the pleasure of trying bath, on first and second floor’s. Second floor’s bath room is bigger and just amazing beautiful. After staying in the hot water (onsen) for 10 minutes longer, we could feel every part of our sore muscles and healed and relaxed. Minshuku Kawataniya is an ideal spot to stay of visiting Takayama. It’s rates are reasonable and service is like 3.5 star hotel. Great location as it is close to JR station. Miyakawa-Morning market. Hida kokubunji temple and several downtown tourist spots.All are within 10 minute walking distance. Best of all, the staff here can understand enough English to help us and answer our question. Although their English is not proficient, at least they can communicate enough to make us feel safe, welcome and contented.(^^)
