I was surprised that for a ryokan, they had Wifi access and a T.V. in our rooms. I guess it's to be expected these days. We also had a Western bathroom in each room which worked well for my kids who were not going to try the public baths. The ryokan also has individual baths in the public bath area. That is, there's a small private room that has a stool and a hand spray for washing before going into your own bath. The onsen was wonderful. There were two in the women's area, both outdoors with nice surroundings and each of different temperature. It was a nice way to relax after a day of sightseeing. In hindsight, I would have arrived at the ryokan earlier so that I could the onsen before and after dinner.
As mentioned in many of the other reviews, the garden at the ryokan was quite beautiful and expansive. It was nice to wander along the various paths in the kimono robes and slippers that the ryokan provided.
The dinner and breakfast were amazing. Every dish was so well presented. Although we didn't recognize many of the dishes, they were all very tasty and in some cases, very interesting like one dish that included a small squid. A very nice dining experience overall.
The facilities at the ryokan could benefit from an update. Some areas were dirty from wear over the years and there's not much by way of decoration in the halls. The room doors are made of steel which made closing the doors a bit noisier than if they were made of wood and it made the place feel a bit more "institutionalized".
