Experience the real perfect ryokan in Japan... In the best spot to see cherry blossom !!
Yoshino is the Mecqua to see cherry blossoms : thousands of cherry trees all over the mountains surrounding you...
The hotel itself is the perfect ryokan : you are greeted by the landlady, a beautiful elegant japanese woman, or by her helpful (and english-speaking!) son. The hotel has large traditional rooms (most of them overlooking the cherrytrees valley), with balconies and bathroom, and there is a splendid outdoor common bath under the stars or the sun... The diner is served in your room, and it is a real eating festival, served by a woman in kimono. All of it is truly authentic, traditional, and so good !
Look at the internet site (www.hounoya.gr.jp), although it is in japanese for the moment, there are photos...!
It is really worth it. Unforgettable. Perfect.
