It is a very small hotel in a very quiet small town. We didn't feel very impressed when we first saw the hotel. After we checked in and went to our onsen, it was so amazing and then our fantastic dinner. It was Wows!!! Everything was so perfect, relaxing and so peaceful. We also felt in love with the town. It was so peaceful and didn't want to leave. It worth every afford to get there. Love love it so so much!!!

An amazing 5-star japanese experience right from the beginning. Greeted in the parking lot as we drove up. Check-in was very friendly and professional. The ryokan is exceptional in every respect - very traditional and japanese but also extremely comfortable. Room was large, beautiful, and we even had our own ofuro (bathtub) in the room. Dinner was an experience to behold - wonderful. We brought our own wine and that was fine. The onsen are spotless and lovely. The only disappointment - from my research there was a konyoku (mixed) bath available. But it seems that is no longer the case. There is one indoor and one outdoor (rotemburo) bath for men and the same for women but there are no mixed baths (konyoku) anymore. There are 3 private family baths that you can book for an extra 1080 yen for a 45 minute session. But if you don't book a family bath you will not be able to soak with your partner.

Dinner was amazing! The baths were also very nice, though the private one we booked was too hot.
