16th generation running the hotel so they really know how to do it. Traditional Ryokan so shoe changing, tatami mats and futon essential. Tradition tempered by full heating and shower etc. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent traditional dinner and breakfast. Indoor & outdoor onsen on top floor were clean and well appointed.

We stayed here on our WalkJapan tour so it was included in the package price. It is a lovely place with a first class onsen, very nice, well appointed traditional rooms. The food was incredible ! Absolutely the most beautiful presentation we saw in our 18 day trip. True artistry.
