Ryokan Tsurugata was wonderful! It is perfectly situated in the middle of old Kurashiki. We did pass by it originally because it does not have a sign in english indicating its name. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The ryokan is a beautiful building with a lovely garden that guests are free to walk around in. Our room was clean and comfortable. Dinner was served in our room by a really nice woman who worked hard to translate the names of the food we were eating. The meal was incredible, one of the best we had in Japan. The food was beautiful and intricate and delicious. After dinner the staff suggested that we take a walk around the canal that flows through the old town and even offered us a lantern style flashlight. We had to leave early the next morning and it was no problem with the staff to serve us breakfast early and they called a taxi for us. Breakfast was also fabulous. We were given small fires to cook our own fish-a very interactive experience!
I would highly suggest Ryokan Tsurugata. It was a fabulous experience and well worth the cost.More
