Our first impression of this ryokan was not very good. When we arrived we were told quite curtly that check in time was 3 PM. Of course we were fine with that, but the woman’s manner was not representative of the warm receptions we received in other hotels and ryokans we stayed in throughout our two weeks in Japan, even when we arrived early at our other accommodations. Other than this woman, the staff was wonderful. We had Yuka for the first two nights and another woman for the last night as our servers and both were very lovely. This is a very, very traditional ryokan. You sleep on futons and are served meals on the floor at low tables. As a western traveler, I think it is nice to experience this for a night or two, but not more at this ryokan. The others that we visited were more of a mix of western and Japanese style. You still had a very Japanese experience, but with some added western comforts.

Perfect Japanese comfort complete with tatami mats, meals served in room, and public bath.

Food, room, and service were fantastic. A great experience, would highly recommend.
