Response from Mike & Kiyoe:

As a host, you know that eventually you'll get one guest who will pen a horrendous review...but it's still a shock when it comes! We're tempted to simply direct you to our many highly positive reviews, but there are a few things here that should be addressed.... First, we're sorry that a taxi driver was unfamiliar with our secluded address; however, to date we have not been given responsibility for training local cab drivers. It's obvious that Ms. Heegaard did not read the detailed AirBnB property description; if she had, she would have seen that the hosts at the Magical Inn are Jude Brand and Mr. Gonno. Apparently Ms. Heegaard was also unaware that she'd stumbled across AirBnB reviews of our rental home in Big Bear, which features the outdoor hot tub, and where Kiyoe cooks; Big Bear is in California, where we live. Unfortunately, Ms. Heegaard also failed to heed two welcome messages which explained that Jude handles hosting in Japan -- and also prepares a fine breakfast *if* she receives a request prior to a guest's arrival. We are sorry that Ms. Heegaard was offended by the aesthetics of the national hospital, a low-rise facility visible 450 feet away, across a very large greensward as shown in our photos; the AirBnB listing explains that the president of this highly respected hospital received a special dispensation from the Japanese government to build the inn. We understand that our guest had never visited Japan before, and we apologize that Jude was not familiar with directions to a somewhat obscure destination that is 400 miles from the inn. Finally, we suggest that when there are mosquitos about...close the window. It is true that Jude recently quit smoking after three decades, and because the effects caused our host to offer a formal apology, we are giving Ms. Heegaard a partial refund. And now...gentle reader...please enjoy our other reviews.
