It was a fantastic traditional experience. Made me feel very comfortable experiencing traditional hospitality. Was able to take advantage of a private Onsen.

Great location and views. Restaurant is incredible. Property is feeling a little aged, needs some serious refreshing. Concierge service was mixed.

It was an older building which could have used some updating. All the same it was well maintained and the staff were phenomenal. We took the kaiseki dinner in the evening and it was IMMACULATE. Same goes for the Japanese style breakfast in the morning. I wasn’t allowed to use the public baths as I have visible tattoos but the private bath was adequate. They use a small amount of chlorine in the water which I wasn’t expecting but I suppose it makes sense. If you’re looking for a traditional style ryokan look no further. A lot of places tout themselves as “international” ryokans to foreigners and they’re just regular hotels with a bathtub - don’t be fooled. The high price is worth the night for the experience.

The nine course, two hour dinner in a private room was amazing! The location was exceptional as well—close to the bamboo forest, temples, and Monkey Park. A great coffee shop on the corner (ryokan only serves tea!) A fabulous experience. Highly recommend.
