Stayed one night there and regretted for not staying longer. Onsen was awesome, room was big and clean, food was not amazing but tasted fairly okay.

When I go to a ryokan, I usually stay in a place with less than 30 rooms, so this one looked massive to me. However, it's got a nice garden and a few lodges in its grounds where you can stroll around in the fresh morning air (check out is 11am whilst many other ryokan's ask you to leave at... More
