This is exactly as a classic Japanese inn is supposed to be. It is also a good value for the price. The bath is nice. The food is prepared well and it may not be what your used to but it's good and healthy. it's true that the hallways are cold but that makes the room all the more cozy and it's the way Japanese buildings are. None of the traditional ryokans are going to heat the inside of the whole building. It's simply not done. That's why they provide house coats. What makes this inn unique is it's approachability. Finding a traditional lodging experience like this with English speaking staff to explain the intricacies of staying at a Ryokan is rare. Go here first. Ask questions about the etiquette and culture of the ryokan stay. Ask about the food too. If you don't speak Japanese, this is a great place. Ask about the many treasures on display in the lobby and garden areas. Also attend the morning meditation. Don't forget that this is a temple. It's meant to be a simple, quality lodging house for pilgrims and spiritual travelers.
