My finance' and I stayed at Jinya Aug 22-25, 2013. We are from Seatle, WA and we wanted to visit Kamakua for a few days before heading to Tokyo. Researching the internet, we found Jinya, an upscale high-end ryokan outside a big city, which catered to our preference. We didn't know how the stay would pan out, but judging from the picture gallery and reviews, Jinya possessed the quality that we prefer.
The 3 nights stay at Jinya was "unforgettable". The most vivid memories were several. First, Jinya had great friendly staff who provided services from the heart. From the Executive Manager (Mr. Takumi Igarashi) down to the bell boy and driver, they were courteous, polite, unassuming, and always had smiles on their faces. They went out of their ways to help us as we checked in at 10:30pm, and when we departed for Tokyo they also relentlessly helped us.
Second, great high-quality ryokan food. BF and Dinner were plentiful and "Oishi" (delicious), and the menu changed daily, which made our 3 days very enjoyable. Home-cooked would be a fitting description.
Third, Jinya is clean and spacious, and very fitting to our liking.
Fourth, the hot spring and spa was equally enjoyable for us as we love onsen public bath.
Jinya would be a great place to stay in all seasons. We look forward to returning next time in Japan.
