This ryokan is one of the top 5 I have visited in Japan thus far, and I have been to well over 100. The rooms are well appointed, well designed, and are a mixture of rustic, traditional, and modern.
The fusion of several time periods and genres flows smoothly throughout the entire facility.
Room: Ai. This room was the size of a small home and came with a garden, yard, a pavilion, and a traditional rotenburo. The private ofuro (bath) opened to a view of the yard and garden and allowed direct access outdoors onto the deck in thr backyard.
The private rotenburo and ofuro were simply amazing. We enjoyed the light, yet filling breakfast and specifically the positive energy of the staff.
A+ grade :). Good for Families, Couple, or for solo travelers.
