I am confused by the reviews left by other people — perhaps they don't know what to expect from a ryokan? First, what people describe as 'nagging' is better understood as traditional Japanese hospitality. Each room comes with an extraordinarily attentive maid whose job is to guide you through the phases of a stay in a traditional hotel, including tea,...

The hotel is a classic design with well appointed tatami rooms. The mats are in perfect shape, the room is beautiful, the garden outside is perfectly Japanese. What i love the most are the people here. Although their english are not so fluent but they are very helpful and hospitable. Would definitely be back if I was to travel to...

When I found out how much my husband paid for this accommodation booking I just about fell over. But I did look forward to spending 3 nights here to see what the big deal was. We spent several nights in Tokyo and then Hiroshima in Western style hotels so this was supposed to be a nice change. The staff were...

If you are a little nervous about staying at a traditional Japanese inn, or worry about language, or dealing with unfamiliar customs (or wonder if it's really worth a chunk of money) don't be. This is a remarkable, unmissable experience, and they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Our attendant ( you will see a lot...

If you want to experience a traditional japanese inn, this is very nice. clean, pleasant staff. However, it is next to a major road so it is LOUD all hours of the day and night. The staff is not too helpful if you want to get information about going other places as their english is limited to so do your...

We were 4 people staying (my 2 cousins and partner). From the very beginning when we arrived we had a wonderful experience. The staff were absolutely incredible, kind, and punctual. Our room was beautiful and a great place to relax. We tried the onsen which was lovely and relaxing. The building is very well taken care of and great to...

We stayed there for two nights and really enjoyed both the place in itself and the service. Our room, although "standard" was big and felt more like a suite. Taka, who was taking care of us, was extremely friendly and attentive ; the rest of the staff was equally dedicated. Breakfast was great. Overall, a wonderful opportunity to live the...

This is a charming traditional ryokan with a very welcoming staff. We stayed for one night to have the traditional experience, including the in-room dinner + breakfast. I wouldn't recommend the in-room massage, as it's not a very relaxing experience. The food was great, but without a menu to guide us, we weren't always certain what we were eating.
