INTERNATIONAL TATTOOED TRAVELERS BEWARE: We were very excited about the Onsen option but, as we had some larger tattoos, we were denied access to the open air hot springs and spa. Additionally, it was very hard to find other restaurants or spa service in the immediate areas that allowed people with tattoos. Though the room was comfortable and larger than all our AirBnB’s we stayed in, we had trouble utilizing this hotel other than to sleep and eat breakfast (which was a lovely spread tho). If you’re looking to go for the hot springs, don’t book this if you have tattoos that can’t be covered up by bandaids.

A very nice ryokan with excellent food and a private onsen in the room. Lokated at Biwa-ko lake surrounded by moutains. Also very near Kyto, which can be reached in1/2 hour by train.
