First, it is a real traditional Japanese townhouse, and it is in the center of the old-town area, which makes it the perfect starting point for a night-stroll along the illuminated river and the old houses. It is also very much prepared for welcoming foreigners, the staff speaks fluent English, and are very friendly!

great start to our trip
Yuurin An is a guest house that caters to the young and young at heart. It's a notch above a youth hostel, but that is the western equivalent. It is excellent value for money and a great location. The staff in super friendly and it is a special experience to meet the guests and find out what they are in town for. It was our first night in Japan, and it was a super way for us to start knowing the country. Highly recommended if you are prepared for such a stay.

まずはなんといっても明るく優しく迎えてくれるとこです!これは、他では体験できないくらいです。たぶん自分の家なみのあったかさ。( ・∇・)スタッフの人が元気であったかいのが1番の魅力です。 もちろん古い古民家っぽいので田舎体験ができるのもいいです!あと、人数分のコンセントがあるのもポイント高いです。

古いながら毛布が2枚と湯たんぽが配布され快適だった。 朝ごはんの卵かけごはんは、秀逸です。 アメニティなし、シャワーのみ、和室で5000円弱はやや高いですが、美観地区に宿泊したいならアリだと思います。
