+ Lovely traditional Ryokan + Very attractive wooden buildings and Japanese garden + Very charming, friendly and attentive owner & staff + We effectively had own little house with own toilet & dining room. Lots of space + Very nice separate wooden onsen bathhouse used on a family basis (by both of us at the same time) which we much prefer. Only 5-6 rooms, so never busy. + Extremely good multi-course Kaiseki dinner each evening and lovely Japanese breakfasts not to be missed. Some of the best meals of the holiday. + So very nice after having an onsen, to sit in your Yukata, watching life in the garden, having a lovely breakfast. Every day, they very kindly wrote out an English translation of everything they could on the menu. + Strongly recommended for a relaxing couple of days to enjoy a very good traditional small Ryokan experience, a little bit away from the main tourist path. - Initially seemed a bit awkward to get to, but in practice was very simple, and more than compensated for by the overall very enjoyable experience - 10mins / Yen c1300 taxi from Shin-Kurashiki station. Big taxi rank, & all knew Bingoya. Ryokan called us taxis in the morning, or took us. Shin-Kurashiki has 5-6 Local trains / hour to Kurashiki (10mins), and is on the Shinkansen for longer trips - not enough clothes storage cupboards / hangers, but thats normal everywhere. we were travelling for 4 wks, so had a lot. - A personal thing, I’m not super keen on aircon based heating…
A very sweet woman welcomed us to Bingoya after our late arrival and double checked to make sure we could still get something to eat at the tiny bar across the street before sending us on our way. Charming, the ryokan comes with all the traditional Inn amenities. Built into a hillside, you may have to climb quite a few stairs to get to your room. It is about a fifteen minute taxi ride from the train station.
From the futon-tatami beds to the free traditional Japanese breakfast to the incredible onsen (Japanese bath) experience to the magnificent hosts, this place is the best. It is the most beautiful lush setting for a simplistic and authentic ryokan. I would stay again in a heartbeat.
We can not find any fault. So friendly. Immaculately clean. Unbelievably helpful and friendly staff. Traditional rooms, beautiful garden, delicious Japanese breakfast included, hot baths. We had adjoining three rooms and dining room between 5 of us.
