Absolute authentic Ryoku. Everything about this place is stunning and awe-inspiring. The care and consideration of detail from the robes they give you to wear to dinner to the specialty dishes. I will never forget this experience.

From my own experience (if we are talking about the same type of room), the in-room bathroom has zoned properly with Solid Door. The Glass Door is just to separate the shower room and basin zone inside the bathroom. Anyhow... More

Hi. I think Breakfast starts at 6, though don't quote me on it! We booked via booking com I think. I'm sure you can ask staff there or email them (google translate if need be). It's a beautiful place!
