the service, the food, the atmosphere -- everything about this place is perfect. it was such an unusual experience to stay in a ryokan and we are glad we chose this one! it was stunning, immaculately clean, charming, authentic without being cheesy, and so comfortable (we were worried about sleeping on the floor). the staff were so nice and really took the time to explain how everything works and what everything was in our room and on our plates (we did the kaseiki dinner in our room, which i highly recommend). i especially loved how much time, effort, and thought went into every detail of our stay, right down to the plum jelly on our fruit at breakfast that came from the plum trees right in front of the ryokan. our one-night stay at shiraume was the absolute highlight of our tokyo/kyoto trip!
