Tendo area, Yamagata prefecture, (2 1/2 hours Shinkansen from Tokyo) is so impressive with the changes of colors. This rural mountainous area surrounding by majestic temples offered a variety of hiking for all seasons and different sizes of some of the best Onsen ryokans (hot spring hotels).
After a short taxi ride from the train station you will be awed by the front landscaping of this hotel. Our room is absolutely SPACIOUS for a family of 4 people with a gorgeous private garden, patio and an outdoor rocky "ONSEN BATH". We had dinner and breakfast served in room fit for ROYALTIES. Japanese best is HOSPITALITY . At this ryokan, their PROFESSIONALISM is outstanding.
I still think English is not their forte, it's much preferable you have a Japanese speaker.More
