HisatoAn Traditional Inn
New Orleans, Louisiana
Authentic Japanese living in TainanWe booked the entire house after reviewing web comments and Facebook descriptions. The house is located in west central Tainan in a quiet neighborhood. It is one of the connected houses in a long alley found typically in Tainan. The house was remodeled in traditional Japanese style. It consists of an upper unit and a lower unit, both are unique. We rented both units. The lower unit has a small anteroom, living room, small rock garden and bathroom. The anteroom and living room are floored with tatami (Japanese bamboo mat) and can be separated by a sliding screen. The bathroom has a shower plus wooden tub for authentic Japanese bath experience. It is next to the small rock garden. There is a LCD TV, kettle for tea, dehumidifier and air conditioner. The upper unit is reached by very steep stairs. The rooms are slightly bigger as there is no rock garden. The ceiling is higher. Personally I really liked the upper unit because of higher ceiling. I have attached my photos of the upper unit in this review. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe. There is virtually no noise at night. There is a small Taoist temple and small fresh market nearby. Within a walkable one kilometer radius you can visit most of the cities landmarks such as Fort Provintia 赤崁樓, Confucius Temple, Koxinga Shrine, Literature Museum, Lin Department store, etc. it is close to all essential Tainan eateries especially ones on Guohua Street 國華街. Check in place is not at the house. You have to go to manager's place which is located in another B&B. Once checked in they will send you by taxi (we drove our car) to the house. No food is allowed in the house to protect the tatami flooring. But don't worry as restaurants and eateries are conveniently closeby. We maintained contact with owner/manager by social media for needs such as cleaning and advice for restaurants. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet at the Hisato-an. Tainan is a charming city full of tradition and amazing Taiwanese foods.
Really new roomWhen you walk into the room, you will feel like in the Japan. All the design in this room are similarly as Japan house. It is also the traditional living in the Tainan. The TV use the internet signal so can watch different channels. I will stay here in the future again.

A Japanese suite hidden inside of Tainan's hipster districtThe suite is newly furnished in traditional Japanese style, hidden in a tiny street near Tainan's hipster district. There are many things to do around the area, and you could also book their Yukata service. The staff is very helpful and gave us tips and directions to local restaurants and attractions.
WonderfulMe and my friend had a wonderful stay at this lovely Japanese style hostel - which is located in a quiet little alley not so far from a popular tourist spot Shennong Street. Everything here is nice and tidy. The host of this hostel is really sweet and kind. We will definitely come and stay here when we have chance to visit Tainan again.
