Perfection traditional experience
We loved our stay at a traditional ryokan. The location was perfect to bus stops and trains as well as great restaurants. The breakfast meal was delicious and all the staff was extremely welcoming and sweet.

Lovely stay!
Wonderful stay! The staff was amazingly helpful and friendly. As someone who doesn't speak Japanese, the staff went out of their way to speak English (very well, too!),and there were never any communication issues. The staff was able to help me by calling restaurants and making dinner reservations. The room was spacious and comfortable. The common areas could use some upgrades, but overall I would highly recommend it. We did not eat at the ryokan so I cannot comment on the food. A wonderful traditional experience and I would highly recommend it.
Alyssa, us5 night romance trip
Very Good 8.0
The hotel is centrally located and the staff was very friendly. This is a traditional Japanese inn experience so sleeping on futons by default is not comfortable, we stayed for one night and that was perfect. Also be aware that the room is not turned over for sleeping until 8pm (ie, futon mats placed for sleeping), we were exhausted from traveling so would have liked to lay down before heading out again. We did not try the dinner but we enjoyed the morning breakfast.
