Peaceful and relaxing - this is a truly unique and special experience! No ordinary house- part of a larger complex hosting exchange students from all over the world, that includes a camp site, home cooked food, and hosts who will be happy to help with any aspect of your stay. The food from the on site restaurant is delicious, superb value and very Japanese! It's a few km out of Toyooko town set in stunning countryside, not walkable with luggage, but our host was able to pick us up from the train station. The room is quite big and has a private bathroom. In summer it gets dark early - before 8pm - so be sure to let the hosts know your plans. (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Translate is a must-have but be wary that some things don't translate well and note that there is little mobile signal at the property- download the Japanese language for offline use. The famous Kinosake-onsen town, with souvenirs and restaurants, is a walk away and the beach is a bus ride. For an extra cultural experience ask the hosts about having a meal at their Japanese restaurant in Toyooka town, we were treated to the freshest seafood and fine Sake, all served in traditional Japanese style and with great value for money. Thank you so much to our wonderful hosts!
