We spent 2 nights at this Ryokan after reading countless positive reviews online and in travel guides. Overall, it was a fantastic experience, but after experiencing other Ryokans I realized that the Hiiragiya was overpriced, and this is why I gave this Ryokan 4 stars instead of 5. The rooms were lovely, bedding clean and cozy and the helpful attendants created a warm, traditional and inviting experience.
The food was superb but too much was served at dinner and we were still full when we woke up the following morning to enjoy our huge breakfast.
The location was great and we really enjoyed the serenity inside the Ryokan - it was like we had been transported back in time every time we stepped into the main doors.
In general, a great Ryokan experience, but definitely consider looking into other Ryokans that are just as beautiful at half the price.
