The house, called "150 years old house" is so typical japanese, it can't be better. What means everything is very lovley and gentle. Use and handle everything with respect and the house will be your home for your stay. The kitchen offers two gas heated plates, a very modern frige with lots of room, a microwave is also available. The toilette is very modern and the shower + the tub is so relaxing. We spent two weeks in 11.17 and it was like a late summer. Not cold, not too hot. Be warned! We will be back as soon as possible. Oh, and watch your head if you are taller than 1,70m. Sometimes it hurts to be from Europe. ;)

Although we did not use the bikes, it was nice to know they were available. The apartment was clean and very functional, neat and organized, perfect for 2 people. It was a little difficult to find, especially since my phone died, but I finally figured out how to get there. It was so interesting to be on the little streets where cars can't go.
