This isn't a bad place to stay, but there wasn't really anything about the experience I found noteworthy enough to justify the price. The location is certainly good. The garden downstairs was quite nice. The food was good, not amazing. The atmosphere was fairly plain and authentic. It felt like like staying in a place fifty or a hundred year ago. Which may not really be what you're looking for. The service was good but not especially friendly compared to some other places we stayed in Japan. Not unfriendly, but just not especially warm. Maybe it was because we came here after a pretty amazing experience at a more modern, luxurious ryokan, but we were disappointed. I think we would have felt different if it were inexpensive.
