The staff is friendly and helpful. The food is amazing! I can recommend the breakfast and also the diner. The description of the hostel is not exact though. There is no orange orchard next to the hostel, but about 1km far. The 3 places are for foreigners, but there is also few rooms only for locals. The place is not good for sleeping without ear plugs. Noise is going through the rooms, sleeping on futon means to get shaking to your body everytime someone is going next to the room for toilet.

a delightful little place right in the middle of coastal village, very close (~50meters) to the sea, even a little beach close by. Nice little walk up into the orange/mandarin orchards from right next to the beach area. About 2.5km from train station (easy and inexpensive taxi ride, about 700 yen). Japanese style or western style rooms available, also japanese bath/hot-tub and a good japanese breakfast (toast& jam also available) for a reasonable price (about 50-600 yen).

Mrs. Kyoko Yamagiwa is the best hostess you wish to have, very warm and caring. She personally prepared breakfast for each guest that include both the Japanese and western style, all only for 600 yens. She even offered me the fresh picked oranges from her grove; shared sweet rolls and tea with me after she offered me a free rides to and back the Yuasa historical district. On my departure she gave me one jar of her famous orange marmalade to take home with me. I give her my two thumbs up.

If you want to get away from the big cities in Japan, this is a great place to escape to. The owner is very friendly and helpful. There's a train line so you can do day trips if you want but if you want to stroll around the town and look at some historical buildings you can. Love it here!! Yuasa is apparently where soy sauce was created.
