Very good 8.0
Nice and cosy. Could be better if slightly cheaper
Considering the amount paid, we were slightly disappointed as a family. This is because we have stayed in many ryokans before. However, do expect the usual Japanese service standards and hospitality. Kaiseiki dinner was nice and varied in our 2 nights stay as well.

Not as shown in pictures, but still good
Secluded area, annex room quite far from reception, noisy when walking on wooden floor, but overall ok
Malvin, gb1 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great peaceful location to stay!
This was a beautiful hotel, traditional Japanese, which is what we wanted. I would highly recommend it. It is outside of the main downtown so we only wish we had planned to stay longer than 1 night. The taxis were easier and faster then the buses, but there is a bus from the JR train station.

Lovely but not as educational as we hoped
We enjoyed the trip all in all though we didn’t have as much of a cultural learning experience as we had expected. The staff was very friendly and accommodating however there was an expectation that we know all of the cultural customs. We did fine and had a good experience, just a word of wisdom to any travelers looking for a learning experience.

Amazing place to stay
It was a great experience staying on a traditional Japanese home. If given the chance, ill come again and stay there.

Nice, family style ryokan
Nice, family style ryokan. We stayed in the annex building which is about 2 blocks walk away from the main ryokan. It had a lovely garden, though the building itself was a bit old and the paper sliding doors were ripped and had patches in some places. Pro-tip: Since the prices were all the same for the annex we booked the Deluxe room and it was huge! There was a little tea area with a kotatsu where you could sit and see the garden that felt really homey. I caught glimpses of other visitor's annex rooms that looked smaller. Bathrooms are shared and you can definitely hear other travelers at night. You may also see them lounging about if you go out into the common areas, of which there are many. I didn't mind as they weren't super noisy and it was nice to say hi in the mornings. The only thing was the wifi router became unplugged and only 1 of 3 hotspots worked... on the last day we followed the cables and discovered the problem, which was solved simply by plugging the power back in. To be honest we thought it was a bit dirty and not that pleasant at first, but the ryokan really grew on us every day and by the end of our stay it felt like coming home, which I did not experience at any other hotels on my Japan trip. It's truly a homey place. Short walk to the bus stop, though do note it is is a bit far from city center. Shared areas were a bit run down but clean and well kept
