I stayed in similar hotels (ryokans) but this one was probably the best. Here, you will experience lots of the traditional japanese things: onsen, food, tatami-matted rooms, ...

Very clean hotel with superb amenities. The onsen is quite nice and the facilities are dated but clean. Stayed at a Japanese-styled room and it was superbly comfortable.

The building looks like it could need a fresh coat of paint from the outside but the interior is clean, well maintained and it looks new. I like the traditional Japanese feel in the building. The onsen is awesome. There are two baths for each sex; one on... More

We came here after climbing Dewa Sanzan. We stayed at the summit of Mt Gassan the night before, so we were ready for some luxury. At the station we asked about a courtesy bus, but were told to take a taxi. A passing woman advised us to take the bus, which was cheap and quick. On the way back, the... More
