Very spacious and comfortable ryokan to stay. A lot of Japanese local food was served during dinner. We had very pleasant interaction with the two attendants that served our dinner. One lovely elder lady who tried to speak English to us and a younger lady that accompanies her; kept us entertained throughout dinner. Transportation provided to and from the nearest train station. Overall very nice stay. Also offer halal menu.

Overall, lovely

Wonderful atmosphere and beautiful room. The hotel staff are very sweet but they can be quite obstrusive. I think it's cultural. You cannot miss the breakfast slot or they'll call your room and even come up personally to check on you if you miss their call. Overall, a lovely stay. Thank you!
