    I stayed at Karoi room. The dinner was awesome.. I’ve stayed at many half board onsen ryokans with kaiseki dinner. This one is absolutely the best! It even included a molecular gastronomy dish on our menu. Overall great service, clean room and nice private outdoor bath with free drinks and snacks in the room. Wonderful experience!
