My family had a lovely two night stay at Sozankyo in early December. It isn’t, strictly speaking, a completely traditional ryokan as it has been built up over the years with more rooms and facilities, so it’s more like a small and luxurious boutique hotel....More

About
Description
Welcome to Sozankyo. This Modern Ryokan was built almost 60 years ago. Sozankyo consists of 3 wooden buildings, and each of the 38 Japanese-style rooms has its own private toilet. Sozankyo has natural hot More spring water for the guest's relaxation and enjoyment (the baths are same gender only). There are 2 hot spring baths at Sozankyo - a Japanese orange bath and a milk bath both of which are highly beneficial for both skin and muscle ailments. Delicious, seasonal meals are served throughout the year and the owners of Sozankyo are particularly proud of their tofu dishes. Check-in time is after 15:00 and check-out time is before 10:00 am. Parking is available. Less

Our room had a separate toilet, and a sink in the sitting area, along with a fridge. There are actually private onsen in Sozankyo which you can reserve a time slot for at no extra cost, which have their own showers.
