Hoshide–kan

2–15–2 Kawasaki, Ise, Mie-ken, 516-0009, Japan

Almost a century old, this traditional inn has wood-decorated tatami rooms and narrow, squeaking corridors. The hosts are congenial and considerate—they provide dinner at a table for those tired of sitting on the floor, and vegetarian and macrobiotic meals if requested in advance. Hoshide-kan is near the quaint Kawasaki area, 5 minutes north of Kintetsu Station or 10 minutes from JR Station. Follow the main street and it's on the right just before the second set of signals. If you want to explore the city on two wheels, the inn rents bicycles for ¥300 a day.
