This was an amazing ryokan. A 100 yr old building beautifully restored with heavenly gardens. The service and cuisine was impeccable. The onsens were lovely including a small outdoor bath. More than anything the warmth of the hospitality and gourmet local cuisine was well worth the expense. Walking distance from the sweet little station of Bessho Onsen and the the... More

At the moment we entered the room #26 after checking-in, we were shocked with the status of our room.

Rooms might need some refurbishment and in winter, the bathroom can get really cold. But nothing that wouldn’t make your staying there unpleasant. On the opposite, the staff is very friendly and the garden very beautiful. Dinner was served in the room, but breakfast not. Nevertheless, I think this is something they decide on the previous day, depending on how... More

My husband and I do not speak Japanese but visited Hanaya with our daughter who does. I don't know if there is English-speaking staff, but imagine we could have muddled our way through with a phrase book or two. We stayed in a room (actually a large 3-room suite) with a private hotspring bath. The rooms and the views from... More
