  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

It is a beautiful resort, with an aged but quaint look and feel. There is a private spa which can be booked so your group of friends can share a bath. Food is very exquisite, and traditional Japanese ryokan style.

Excellent service!!

Top service and room facilities for an Onsen hotel. The breakfast and dinner were delicious. We tried both of their private and public Onsen and they were both good. The hotel even ring me from Japan to confirm my arrival time at the train station so they can arrange a shuttle bus for pickup.

Love this place!

It was amazing! It was my first time at a ryokan and it was better than anything I have ever imagined. Attentative staff, tons of services (karaoke included) and just the perfect atmosphere. Can't wait to come back!
