Nobuko is a delightful hostess who made our stay in Ise very special. The local Shinto shrines were very beautiful, surrounded by acres of lovely forest. The accommodation is as pictured, plenty of hot water to shower with and 2 reverse cycle air conditioners to keep warm with. Her breakfasts were delicious at her totally interesting little historic cafe. We used the provided microwave to heat up our dinner one night, and had facilities to make our own tea and coffee. From Ise we went on a day trip to Toba and Kashikojima by train and went out on the replica Spanish boat - which was a bit of fun - and enjoyed the lovely coastal scenery on the way. The fresh seafood here is amazing. Highly recommend you go to Ise and stay with Nobuko and explore this quieter area ( the tourists are mostly locals)
I'm a Japanese living in Tokyo, and found the place to be just perfect for a visit to Ise Shrine and everything else the beautiful area has to offer! The following are some of the stand-out features: 1) Spacious & Clean Located in a historic area of town with centuries-old buildings, but this particular house is brand-new! Has all the amenities you need. 2) Location Super convenient! - 5 min from station - 1 min from convenience store - 3 min from supermarket - 5 min walk from a historic neighborhood - great place to visit if you like folkloristics, regional history, renovated cafes and Izakaya, etc. Nothing fancy, but it's a behind-the scenes look at the logistical infrastructure that fed and supported the 5 million or so Ise worshippers every year. 3) Heartwarming host - helpful in every way possible! Offered a lift to the Ise Shrine (10min drive), recommended various places to visit, regular messages to check if things are OK, etc. - breakfast served at host's near-by cafe, which is a renovated historic building. You shouldn't skip it!
Nobuko-san is a wonderful host. She is generous and tries very hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Her home is very clean and easy to find, centrally located near everything by walking and she has bikes for your use. Her daily breakfast at her local cafe a few blocks is a nice comfort to get your day started. Make sure to ask her where to dine and visit while you are in Ise!
