Very Good8.0
nice place to stay
we really enjoyed staying here! great location and very friendly and easy service. a traditional ryokan a no-frills experience, so make sure you know what you're getting in to. check out time of 10am is a little too early for a hotel this expensive, but it is what it is. we had a fun and interesting time, 2 nights enough time here...i couldn't see a reason to stay here longer, and even 1 night would be enough. I definitely suggest checking this out if you want a traditional japanese experience.
