This was the most amazing hotel experience ever for me. Everything was simply perfect. On arrival we were served by our host fresh matcha green tea in our suite. The suite was extremely spacious with 4 separate rooms as well as a private Onsen bath that leads out to a zen garden. Everything in the room seemed new and sparkling clean. The amenities were outstanding with the most cutting edge high tech bathroom I've seen (and I've been around Japan) The toiletries were also name brand.
We had our own onsen tub, but we also checked out the communal baths, and it was pretty great. The water here is 100% onsen that is not man-heated, and you can feel the difference and how soft and smooth the water is.
But what truly stood out was the food. The most intricate, elaborate and delicious food I've had in Japan. There were at least 4 courses each with a number of elaborate dishes. They are served to you in your suite so you can stay in your yukata and enjoy it. The whole gamut of flavors presented to blend amazingly together. The food included kobe beef that you fry fresh yourself, lobsters, fugu fish, abalone, sea urchin, a number of different caviars and a number of other high quality seafood. The Wasabe was freshly ground in front of our eyes. We were presented with tasty green tea before dinner and roasted tea during dinner.
The room charge also included breakfast which was equally amazing.
The staff were so nice and hospitable. We didn't understand any Japanese but everything worked out just fine.
I would recommend this Ryokan to anyone who plans to visit a traditional Japanese Inn. This has got to be one of the best Onsen ryokan experiences in Japan. I hope to go again soon!
My heart and wishes go to those affected by the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.
