Advice on accommodation in Miyama 2015/2/4 14:09
I read on Japan-guide that it is possible to stay in one of the thatched cottages in the village of Miyama, they give prices etc, but apart from a few more commercial places that cater for groups I can find the accommodation anywhere on the internet, does anyone have any advice on how to find this type of accommodation? Thanks

I've stayed at the Hanabusa house and it was excellent. The same owner also has a more modern property called Kaya Village that looks interesting. You can book either via agoda:

Thanks for the swift answer, I did find these but was hoping for the more village-based cottages, which Japan-guide refers to:

One of the best ways to appreciate Miyama's thatched roof houses is to overnight in one of them. Three of the farmhouses in Kayabuki no Sato, along with several more in other villages of Miyama, also serve as lodgings. An overnight stay affords visitors a more intimate look at the houses as well as the chance to experience a traditional Japanese style home as many still feature tatami floors, futon beds and open hearths (irori).

The old wooden homes convey a pleasant, rustic atmosphere, yet at the same time they are typically equipped with simple, modern amenities. Baths and toilets are also usually modern but shared among the staying guests. An overnight stay typically starts from around 5000-8500 yen per person, depending on meals which usually feature local dishes such as sweetfish (ayu) caught locally in the Yura River.

Does anyone have any advice how to locate one of those?

Thanks

I see. I found booking info, but only in Japanese. Try mailing them, but if that doesn't work out you could go via a service like japaneseguesthouses.com
