I stayed at a traditional Japanese place that I loved! It wasn't fancy and it was very inexpensive. It's a cash only business, no credit cards.The cost included dinner and breakfast everyday. The place is owned, run, and all the cooking done by a charming 80 year old, who told me to call her Eiko-ba. In addition to all the cooking and running the place, she also makes omiyage out of hachijo lemons and other fruits and vegetables.
The dining room
I forgot my camera the first evening, but here are the other meals I ate. Lots of fresh fish and local vegetables. One day I saw a fisherman deliver a fish that took both arms to bring in. That became dinner sashimi.
