A very well kept and sheik onset tucked away on the river banks - stayed for one night and throughly relaxed in the charming traditional Japanese rooms, the beautifully and thoughtfully designed outdoor onsen, and indoor facilities as well. I was continually impressed at how well kept the place was - it wasn't just clean, but cared for at a... More

We booked this particular ryokan partly because they have this lovely giant Newfoundland dog named Momo as their mascot, and partly because they have 8 different onsen on their property to choose from.

Although he could not speak fluent in English, I did appreciate his excellent service. Japanese Style Rooms are really big, clean and comfortable. Special "Kaiseki plan" are... More

We have just returned from 5weeks touring Japan on holiday and I would have to rate our stay at the Yamabiko Ryokan as one of the highlights of trip! As we drove in for the first time there was almost a welcoming commitee out the front in expectation of our arrival and they all welcomed us by name! We had... More
