The most amazing part of our Japan Tokyo trip was staying in this traditional Rokyan. We started with a good walk 25mins uphill to reach the Ryokan nestled in the middle of the mountains view. You do not need to walk but can call them at the Miyanoshita station, it cost 10yen to make a call at the public phone which is just outside the station, very convenience.
We were early before the 3PM check-in time and hungry, the Rokyan staffs were so kind to drive us to the local noodle shop for lunch (they do not serve lunch) and bring us back with a call. After which the whole experience is just heavenly - the service is SUPER 5 STARS, the Ryokan has their own HOT SPRING and we were soaking all our aches & troubles away while enjoy the nature view of the forest. Both the Public and Private Onsen are very good. You need to book for the private onsen and they limit you to 30 mins.
The room is spacious and tastefully done up with Tatami mats flooring- it is divided into 2 areas the main hall is for sleeping and dining and a small room for sitting and sipping tea. Our dinner were served in the room and we are SO DELIGHTED with the DELICIOUS local delicacy and the many courses (about 14 courses) . Each of the dishes were skillfully prepare by the chef. The serving lady will be in the room explaining each of the dishes and ensuring everything is alright.
In the morning, we are awaken by the gentle sunshine and birds musical chirping. Breakfast are usually served very early in the room.
5 star service - I do not speak Japanese but can understand kanji hence the next day, the Ryokan staff wrote the menu in kanji so that I can understand them. I was very touched by their thoughfulness.
We stayed for 2 nights and it seems too short, definitely will be going back there again!!!
