Anyone reading these reviews has already decided they want to invest in a full cultural experience, so at this point it's a matter of personal taste and preference. While looking for Ryokans I found those offering attached bathroom started at 27,000 yen pp. If you're going to do a Ryokan, do it right - book a high end one.
We entered the room and my daughter asked where she can take a nap (beds are made up in the evening). I said, "well, I guess you just lie on the floor...!". Then I did too!! Odd yet fun sensation sprawling out on the floor!!!! We didn't want to get up.
We booked a triple (100,000 yen per night). Best part is we went in the fall and the weather was drizzly and cold making the Ryokan even more cozy! Hotel is attached to a shrine/park at the end of a charming street. We went down a side street and caught a glimpse of some Geishas/Miakos alighting from a taxi! Wow!
We had a 7-course Kaseki dinner. I'm not well versed in Japanese cuisine to accurately critique but we liked it. Only bad part was the Kobe beef. It was dry, tough, and overcooked. We chose the Japanese breakfast (how can you not choose this??!!) which was great. Grilled fish, etc.
We booked a room with wood tub. The entire bathroom was made of wood. Note: you do not take a bath in the tub. You wash then soak in the tub like an onsen.
If you stay here I'm sure you will like it.
