The inn called Hokkori(温古里).
A friendly lady will accommodate you at old fashioned Japanese house. The inn only take one booking per day which means you have entire house for you. The owner is an organic farmer and the house is surrounded by beautiful nature and their meals are prepared with freshly picked vegetables, so what you can eat is depends on season.

Bathroom, western style toilet and washing machine is available to use. You need to bring your towel, pajamas and toiletries.

For booking, please ask someone who can speak Japanese to call for you. (The lady is lovely and kind person so she will give you a warm welcome at the place but unfortunately she cannot speak English so...) TEL:0772-62-0934(from Japanese domestic phone)

Access: Unfortunately, there is no public transportation available in the area. So please ask for pick up service from the closest train station(Mineyama station) where takes about 40mins drive to the inn. The pick up service will be extra cost. There is another way to get to this inn, which is use Uber. I think the easiest place to meet up the driver for you is "Ukawa-Onsen Yoshino-no-sato(宇川温泉よし野の里)" bus stop. The cost is approx. 2500yen. Uber is only possible to start run from Tango-cho area so it is not possible to use Uber for return because the inn located in Yasaka-cho area. About the Uber, please check on my blog.

Address: 419-2 Yasaka-cho, Sugawa, Kyotango(京丹後市弥栄町須川419-2)
