Six of us stayed at the Sawanoya in early August, including three children under 16. We had two rooms, one ensuite and one not. My two sons and I stayed in the room without the bathroom. While it was certainly a wonderful experience to stay in a ryokan I would not call it overly roomy. There were three futons on the floor and that took up almost the entire room.
The fellow who runs the place and his son in law (?) are very nice and very helpful. I have to agree with the comment below about the owner's wife (co-owner). If she smiled once, we all missed it.
We found the location very handy. All in all a nice place to stay.
