Anyhow, you can stay at a low price. It is 5500 yen two person at 1 night. Breakfast lunch is attached. ( Service )
Although the room and a passage are very narrow, required amenity has gathered.
The room is cleaned up. The only fault is that there was no shaving.
Hot spring water comes out of a bath for 24 hours.
Service of a front is also good.
When I stayed, since it was the previous night of the festival, outside was busy till late at night.
If you stay in this, you will have various privileges.
EX)You can eat supper by the tie-up with restaurant 60 store of the neighborhood .IT is so reasonable price.
You can rent bicycle and a yukata ( no charge )
There is also service of coffee in the morning.
Since it is built beside the Shinji lake,
if a somewhat high charge is paid, a room whose Shinji lake can be seen from a window can be reserved.
Stayed one night here and had an excellent and interesing experience. It was my first time using a traditional Japanese hot spring bath. Quite an eye-opener.
The public bath was a good experience, very nicely arranged but we also splashed out for the room with private bath on the balcony, overlooking the lake. Superb!
This is a typically family run traditional Japanese inn. They have a small restaurant too. If you book early enough, you can stay with halfboard. I stayed without having any meals. You sleep on Tatami. Like most traditional houses, it's closed during the day.
The ryokan has been in the family since 1893 and is now run by the son Terazu Akihiro.
The best bit was that me and another foreigner staying there got an introduction into No theatre singing from the father. The mother introduced us to the tea ceremony and the son to calligraphy (you get to paint yourself). Sometimes he gives courses.
I stayed 2 nights and really enjoyed it. I had the tourist office phone them up and they came to pick me up from the station and when I left they also drove me to the station, although it would have been an easy 10-12 min. walk.
I think I paid about 4000 or 4500 yen per night without meals.
If you figure out where you are supposed to pay then it will be a few thousand yen I think but if you erect your tent in ignorance then it should be free unless you were unlucky enough to read or speak Japanese!
Japan isn't known for it's beaches so when you find a nice one it's always a bonus! Hamada is a nice beach and it's not man made like the beaches on the Inland sea coast. It's long with nice sand and when it's not galeforce winds it's a lovely place to camp. The psychological Japanese summer is very short starting after rainy season around mid June and finishing in mid August. It is rumored that the Jelly fish come out after this so the beaches empty and its the best time to go. In 3 years at this beach I have only been stung once and it was hardly worth worrying about anyway. The camp ground is empty during Septmeber but the weather is still lovely and hot.
Before rainy season as well the weather is hot enough to be hanging at the beach and without the crowds.
