My Tokyo based family and I enjoyed the most wonderful stay at Hanaya Inn, Tsumago, last weekend. It was great spending time in this well preserved, peaceful Inn, surrounded by bush and a stream on one side, and a very quite road on the other.
Whilst it is not in the Heart of Tsumago itself, and is a short drive to visit the historic town, the location for us was perfect. The town itself, is closed to traffic from 10am until 4pm daily, so, if we had stayed at an Inn in the main town we would have needed to walk (with our suitcases) from the designated parking area. There is a cost for using the park, and it Is some distance away.
The Inn Keeper at Hanaya, along with his family, were very welcoming to us. As with most accommodation, guests are left to do their own thing. Ok; there are set breakfast and dinner times (but, remember, this is a guest house; not a 24/7 convenience store).
The food was absolutely delicious. Each guest group had their own space. The sleeping rooms were very clean and the soft pillows a dream to rest my tired head on. I would recommend this Inn to anyone venturing to Tsumago. I shall most definitely stay here on my next trip to Japan.
This has been a highlight trip for me. Thank you, Hannah Smith

Vending machines like this one make the rainy season in Japan easy to deal with.

This is such a great idea for travelers visiting Japan during the rainy season. An umbrella vending machine! It is even in the shape of a robot which is so Japanese. I saw this one at Kyoto Station yesterday.

Japan scraps airport COVID-19 tests for arrivals from low-risk nations 25/05/2022

Before departing for Japan last week we had to take a COVID test which makes good sense. We then took another test upon landing. This took a long time but was well organized and they processed us smoothly. At that time, Japan was only allowing in 10,000 people a day so it would be fairly easy to manage. I would think this would be unmanageable to do once Japan is open to tourists. I am also guessing that very few people tested at the airport tested positive and had to fly back home. Hopefully, Japan can reopen to tourists very soon.

Japan scraps airport COVID-19 tests for arrivals from low-risk nations The government is aiming to avoid overburdening airport quarantine staff through the drastic relaxation of its COVID-19 border control measures.
