I only had time to stay here one night unfortunately, but it was an excellent night! The owner, well versed in English, was extremely accommodating and sincerely nice. He drove me around to local sights and was happy to explain any questions I had about the town and it's history. Koyasan is a short train ride away and is an absolutely gorgeous area to see. Tea and coffee were also prepared for me, and he drove me to a local restaurant which also employed a native English speaker, so ordering food was no issue for me and my limited Japanese. There is also an onsen located in the same building, which I also enjoyed!
I didn't get to say a proper goodbye because of my schedule, so if you're reading this- Thank you so much for showing me around and giving me a great stay in Kudoyama!
