“Wonderful experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

We knew we wanted a ryokan experience and chose this hotel as it was "reasonable" compared to the others and had good reviews. We really loved this Japanese experience of sleeping on futons on the tatami mats, having a beautiful kayseki meal served in our room at a low table. We eagerly awaited to see what each beautifully prepared course would be. Each dinner was an adventure! The hotel provided us with beautiful yukatas (like kimonos but cotton)as well as demonstrations of how to wear the yukatas properly. Breakfast was served in a large room where you could choose to have either Japanese or western style food. The hotel is directly on the river so be sure to get a room with a view. Bikes are also available to rent. The staff was as helpful as they could be with the little English that they spoke and even less Japanese that we spoke.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the river.
