I have to start with the meals…wow!!!! We had the dinner ‘cooked by local mothers’ – I have to say after the first night I would happily say this was one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten in my life…each dish was like a work of art, truly great experience. Because they change the menu each night we had an equally wonderful meal the next night. We did breakfast the first morning, again the dishes were amazing, the only reason we didn’t do breakfast the 2nd morning was we couldn’t keep eating all this food! If you stay here, don’t have too much for lunch during the day as there are 11 dishes to get through for dinner! The owners are obviously collectors of many different items; glass ornaments, vases, etc, lots to look at while you wander down the corridors of this lovely Ryokan. The baths were great; especially after being in the snow all day! The heated pads under the table while you sat in your room to have tea was a nice touch, as were the heated pads in the futon to keep your feet warm at night. The staff were always very helpful; they recommended the most convenient hot pools to go to for a day trip; easy bus ride into the mountain area. The owner was very proud of his #1 rating on Trip Advisor, so he should be. I would totally recommend this Ryokan as the meals are an experience not to be missed!
