This is the place to stay if you want an AUTHENTIC Japanese experience. You must be ready for it though- this is as authentic as you can get. Food is also very good. Old school lodging for those who wish to experience the Japanese way of living.

How to book rooms from them? Do they have a website? Can I book from trip advisor directly? Thank you!

How can I book the room? Should I book from their web? Is there any hot spring inside the hotel?
January 2, 2016 as well as rooms in it? A double room and a quadruple (two adults and two children)
"Look for a different ryokan."
"Get a room adjacent to the garden with the private toilet"
"We had a first floor room with nice views over courtyards"
"Stair cases to the 2nd floor are quite steep. The "Little Deer" suite connected by an outdoor hallway is amazing."
"Ask for the room connected by the bridge, or a room with a garden view."
