I'd definitely come back again, I promise”

Was the best part of my trip. Kiyofumi-san was really kind enough to pick me up around 830PM at the Nakakaruizawa Station. I super felt at home as if it was my house. The best part which I really liked is the antique interior, the hot tub, the warm room, clean beddings, delicious breakfast and I experienced snow during my stay. If you love to do a nature walk around Nakakaruizawa, the distance isn't really an issue, I went around town by foot only. Walked from the guesthouse to Kogen Church and Harunire Terrace ^^ You can write purchase a postcard also and Kiyofumi-san was kind enough to put the stamps on my postcards as well. Overall, I love this place among all the accoms I stayed during my stay in Japan. Definitely a good place to relax and unwind. Super safe especially for solo travellers 😍

Pro : economical, clean, all basic amenities in place. Cons : Bit away from railway station. ( although owner offers pickup and drop. So nice of him). No dinner available. Also outside restaurants close around 7 pm. So any late dinner is not possible. No buses ply on this route. So only option is walk or taxi.

Owners were very hospitable and kind and allowed me to leave my luggage before check in time. Basic necessities were all provided and they even had a small manga section (if you can read japanese manga). Towels are not provided but can be rented at ¥200 per set (1 small 1 big). My bed was on the top bunk and the stairs is straight vertically (not the angled kind), so it was a bit hard to get down. Other than that, satisfied with the stay!

It's located far from the train station(about 15mins on foot). But the host is friendly and the place is clean. The host will drive you to the train station in the next morning. The bunk bed is a little bit old that when you move your body the bed will make some noise. Except the bed everything is pretty good.
