When planning our second trip to Japan we wanted to try other types of accomadation than standard hotels - with our trip to Homey Inn Enya we made an excellent choice :) The location outside of Yufuin was great as it let us see a bit of the countryside outside the town - If it had been less hot we would have done more exploring but as it was we were content to sit and look! Shinya was a great host - he collected us from the station when we first arrived - 2 trips as the "mini car" would not take all four of us and our vast luggage in one trip! No problem for such a helpful person however! On subsequent trips Shinya managed to fit all four of us in for lifts to town - his reggae soundtrack was apprecieated too. The accomadation itself was just right - a choice of western style bed in the main part of the room, or a futon in the loft - I opted for the futon, geoff for the bed. Aircon was good and efficient, shared bathroom facilities were clean and practical. Food was excellent - we opted for breakfast both mornings and evening meal one night. The quality of the food was excellent - Shinya made the most lovely pizza for us (one of our party had been living in Japan for a year and was really missing pizza - Shinya did him proud!) The fresh ground coffee at breakfast was a nice touch, and the fresh eggs from the hens outside. Great local knowledge from our host - wish we could have stayed longer - Hope to visit again one day :)
