立派なお屋敷と落ち着く広い部屋、そして心温まるおもてなしで、思い出に残る吉野旅を楽しむことができました。 まずは、榛原駅までベンツでのお迎え(運転がとってもお上手でお話し好きのなご主人のおかげであっという間にお宿に到着)、立派な門と3000坪のお庭、スイス館と呼ばれる洋館で暖炉の火にあたりながらのウエルカムサイフォン珈琲は美味しく感じました。 立派なお屋敷である二間続きの広いお部屋は、川のせせらぎが聞こえ、非日常ながらも落ち着ける空間。翌朝、雪見窓から見る雪景色はとても美しく印象に残りました。 また、廊下や建具や階段やお手洗いや脱衣所の洗面所まで、吉野杉と思われる木材が贅沢で気持ちよかったです。 お食事は、柔らかく甘みのある雅豚を使ったしゃぶしゃぶ鍋。この日は珍しい山伏茸が手に入ったとのことで揚げたての天ぷらをいただきました。 高野槇を使用したお風呂は、個室ごとの専用風呂。外の景色を楽しみながら、寛いで入ることができました。 そして、朝食の茶粥に、茶室でのお抹茶のおもてなし。 またオーナーから聴いたこの土地での天誅組のお話はとても興味深かったです。 チェックインからチェックアウトまで、たっぷり時間があると思っていたら、あっという間に時間が過ぎていきました。 どこを写真撮影しても絵になる素敵な空間です。最後まで、心に残るおもてなしをしていただき、またいつか宿泊したいと思いました。 (他の方の口コミで気になっていたお部屋の鍵は、ちゃんと備え付けられていました。)

This was a truly wonderful experience -an experience of a lifetime. Initially we were a bit surprised at the distance to local transport and wondered what we would do with ourselves for our 4 days in this family run ryokan . We should not have been concerned . Our wonderful host , Takeshi , went to a great deal of trouble to make our stay as comfortable and welcoming as possible . He picked us up at the railway station ( Haibara) and drove us to the ryokan . The accommodation is a series of buildings including a swiss style unit and a number of small buildings. One of these is a traditional Japanese tea house . Takes delighted in giving us a traditional tea ceremony. We saw our rooms - traditional Japanese rooms with Tatami mats and futons . Everything is traditional and also are very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the japanese food . Takeshi also treated us to a tour of nara deer park . His relatives had a part in collecting the pieces for the museum by donating some tools and documents from his family . He is very proud of his culture and is more that happy to share is extensive knowledge of all things Japanese . The bath is a wonderful experience overlooking the beautiful mountains at the back of the property. There are vast beautiful gardens to wonder though or sit out in on a sunny day . It is also within walking distance of ht local town although there is not a lot there it a nice walk . The stream at the back has fish for those that like fishing . It is a great place to get away from the busy towns and unwind and absorb the culture of this fabulous country. Thanks for the delightful stay . We will be back !

This ryokan is surrounded by mountain scenery and a beautiful well-kept garden. The rooms are huge, consisting of a large sleeping area and a large sitting area. The best part of our experience was provided by the couple who runs Guest Villa. The owners went out of their way to ensure our stay was as pleasant as possible: they drove out in the evening to get our 3-year old son some milk, babysat our 3-month old baby while we had our meals, provided us with sight-seeing tours and treated our son to ice cream. Thanks to them, we had an unforgettable mini-holiday!

別の口コミでは、批判的な意見でしたが、考え方、過ごし方で価値観は違うと思いま す。私達は友達の家族と行きました。2部屋/日、3000坪のお庭、部屋から見る 川辺、そびえ立つ杉の木、温かみのある旧家の宿、お茶室・・・ 1泊ではなく何泊も過ごしたい気持ちになりました。大変満足でした。 とても落ち着き、実家(実家は本当は大きな家ではありませんが)に帰った気分 になりました。今度は春と夏に来たいと思います。 個人的意見ですが、一般の温泉旅館、ホテルのイメージで来られる方にはお薦め 出来ないと思います。言い方は悪いですが、豪華な民宿です。大人数ではなく、 少人数で貸切で宿泊されたら、このお宿の価値がわかると思います。
