The minshuku is set more or less at the crest of a very switchback-filled road, looking down over a valley. The main building has a thatched roof, and as you walk in the first thing you notice is the smoke coming out of the hearth where they are burning wood - not charcoal. I remember reading some book that said it was important to keep a smoky fire going in houses like this because the smoke keeps bugs from starting to attack the thatch. Our room was in the main (old) building. No entry way, nothing - just 12 mat size, right off the main hall and across from the lobby/dining area. Bathroom is down the hall, definitely old-style. And while the place seems big enough that it could be a ryokan, it’s definitely a minshuku. We had to lay out our futon, there wasn’t much in the way of help or explanation as we arrived, and the place is fairly small - at dinner it seemed like maybe 5 or so other groups were there, and the place was pretty much full. Dinner was a grill your own barbecue, with a couple of other dishes. While good, it was also a bit of work. Pork, chicken, fish, and veggies to grill along with sashimi, chawan-mushi, cold salted tempura, some stewed mountain vegetables and eggplant. All in all quite a good meal, and relatively filling. The local sake we got, though was just mediocre - tasting too much of alcohol and not really that smooth. The bath is also nice, not too hot, which was a good touch considering it’s summer.
