Featuring a garden and a restaurant, Live Cafe Hisui no Umi is located in Itoigawa. This 1-star guest house offers a shared lounge. Free WiFi is included. At the guest house, rooms have a desk. The host was extremely hospitable - she upgraded my room since I was staying for a longer period of time! As a lone traveller without a car, she offered to drive me around, bringing me to places that would have been too far for me via public transport. One night, she even called to check up on me when I wasn't home yet though it was dark out. Breakfast was also very filling, she gives generous portions :) Also, although there were no live performances schedule, her musician friends dropped by to practise and I got to enjoy live music still :)
