Best Ryokan Experience
Monjusou has two carparks - one at the main entrance and another down the road. Driving to the location is a breeze and you'll get to enjoy the beautiful scenery. The staff greeted us at the entrance once we arrived and gave us discount coupons for the Land View attraction as we were early for check-in. They were very friendly and we felt like VIPs under their care. After we came back one staff showed us around the Ryokan, where we learnt that there's two onsen areas - one for males and another for females. They swap the onsen once a day so that you'll get to enjoy two different environments. It would be nice if the onsen can be reserved for private use. There's also an awesome massage chair outside the onsen area that you can use after soaking. The room is right along the river and it's huge - 10 tatami mats to be exact. The room also comes with a balcony, toilet, washbasin area, and a shower room with a wooden bathtub. It's really the largest and most comfortable Ryokan we've ever stayed in. The linen used for the bedding is so soft you'll not want to wake up. We walked around the Ryokan barefooted as tatami mats were everywhere. The staff didn't inform us that dinner would not be served in the rooms but at the restaurant beside the main entrance of the Ryokan, so we waited 30mins in our room in vain. The dinner was very enjoyable and took us over an hour to finish. Breakfast was equally delicious. This is really the perfect getaway place.

Great place
Lovely ryokan. Well kept. Room was great, the onsen is really special. The attached restaurant served kaiseki for both dinner and breakfast. All in all, outstanding.

One of a kind Japanese treat!
The Ryokan (Japanese style hotel) was conveniently located at only a few minutes walk from the station. However, if you call the hotel (not sure if there is an English speaker), their van would gladly come to pick you up. As soon as we arrived at the property, a staff came over to carry our suitcases and greeted us. The hotel is a typical but very nice Japanese hotel with tatami mat. You take off your shoes at the front desk and they will secure your shoes and even remember which shoes you wear. The interior is beautiful with classical Japanese style with narrow corridors with tatami mat. Our room was nice size with private bathtub, shower and the toilet room. We enjoyed the closed in patio room to sit and enjoy the beautiful scenery. The breakfast was not only delicious but out of the world presentation. Loved the staff and especially the friendly and polite servers who serves with the utmost care without expectation of tips. Although this was not the cheapest hotel price you can find, we would love to stay again if opportunity arises!!

A quiet and nice hotel
The hotel is good, staff are helpful. Better reserve the dinner during reservation as all shops nearby including restaurants are closed at night. Unfortunately I didn't reserve dinner with the hotel and almost got nothing to eat. Finally the hotel could find a sushi place for us, with 10 mins walk
