I am guessing that when organising our 12-day trip to Japan, our group leader's guiding principles were "cheap and cheerful" and "reasonably authentic Japanese experience." The Shunkoso was our second ryokan. It's located up a steep hill, within reasonable walking distance of the local station (you can also travel from the station by bus). Our family room was a fair size, but the bathroom was very small. The suite smelled of cigarette smoke (the smell was worst in the bathroom). The whole place was rather shabby and worn, but I quite liked the quirky lay-out of the rooms. It was a relief not to have to keep taking our shoes off in the main part of the inn! The highlight of our stay was the elegance of the presentation of the evening meals and the pleasant manner of the waiter. The dining room also featured a karaoke machine on a stage!
