Staff was very friendly and very accommodating. The driver was excellent! Breakfast and dinner were very good. If you enjoy peace and quiet, this is the place to visit. There is really nothing in the area to visit. This is definitely place that is off the beaten track.

If you want a true Japanese Onsen ryokan without any western tourists, this is a fantastic little place!! The place is beautiful, and the staff could not be more eager to please. And the day trips that Junko set up were just amazing! We went to see a master sword maker, a bizan pottery master, and learned to make a... More

We opted for the suite room with private hot spring bath. It had two queen beds, a massive living area and another Japanese room laid with tatami. We opted to have value rather than volume meal option and was delighted by the quality presented to us. There were snow crab, puffer fish hot pot, scallops, etc. There were a few... More

Dear Kifu no Sato, Coming back to Kifu no Sato for the second time is like returning home from a long journey. A place where friendship is renewed, the meeting of old friends. This time, I brought my dad and friend to experience the excellent omotenashi of Kifu no Sato, Home of seasonal melody and again, it did not disappoint.... More

this is a perfect get away, certainly not a tourist destination (we were the only non-Japanese guests though the staff speaks good English and went out of their way to make us welcome). Included dinner consists of eight courses of perfect, highly aesthetic Japanese food. Once we were overwhelmed by Japanese food th a Western breakfast option provided welcome respite.... More

My wife and I, frequent travelers to Japan, rate this ryokan as one of the best that we have ever stayed. The ryokan itself is a work of art. One is welcomed to a full tatami mat lobby, fragrant incense, ikebana at every corner, beautiful paintings and local glass work objects. The onsen is very comfortable with soft spring water... More

I stayed at Kifu No Sato recently in March. It is a most lovely ryokan with the most beautiful garden and flower arrangements i have seen. That said, I have been to many ryokans. From the outside, and even from google maps, the surroundings looks like the ryokan is in a commercialised area, but far from it being the truth,... More

Thank you very much for staying with us and for your kindest words. We are so happy to know that you liked our place. We keep trying hard to give good Omotenashi for everyone. We hope to see you again in the near future. More

We very much enjoyed our stay at this Ryoken. The building is relatively modern, and the hotel has worked hard at having English- speaking staff. This made it less intimidating for non- Japanese speakers to enjoy a Ryoken experience. We especially enjoyed the lovely food and a late evening open air bath.

My best friend and I (two girls from Hong Kong) spent two days at Kifunosato to chill-out. From the time of booking through the internet, to the time we left the ryokan, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The ryokan had limited English capability, but had a couple of people who could communicate in a limited manner, and were extremely helpful.... More
