We had one night stay last week in Magoemom, and it turns out quite disappointing.
The food is probably the least generous one that we've ever encountered. I have to eat a lot of rice to make myself full. Very limited dishes. As well as mediocre presentation.
Room facilities is almost nothing. Just one table! The wall is paper thin, so you almost have no privacy in everything. Besides, the charcoal smell could be rather unbreathable before dinner, and makes the whole dining room and your clothing full of unpleasant smell.
Worse, I feel we are not welcomed by the ryokan. No smiles. The young lady (perhaps the daughter of the two elderly owner) looks cold and detached. Totally different from what we have experienced in other ryokans.
The futon length is short, so if you are 6 feet then you might have your feet stretching out of the quilt.
The lack of attention to details is reflected by its road in the facade. Essentially no paved and thus very muddy in snowy days, making it inconvenient with luggage moving.
Overall, the ryokan does not meet our expectations with all the statements above. Not recommended.More
