The location of this traditional ryokan might be a bit too secluded and inconvenient for those using public transport but if driving then this place offers a reasonable and interesting stay.
The interior decorations of the ryokan might take some time getting used to but aside from that, we had a good night's stay that included dinner and breakfast. Both meals are served with a buffet style but the food are mainly catered for Asians and Japanese so don't expect to find eggs & bacon here. They have private onsens which you can rent for a fee but I found the public ones to be good enough, especially if you can snag a spot in the outdoor tub facing the flowing river.
The rooms were tastefully decorated and they will help set up your futons while you are away for dinner so don't get a shock when you come back to find your room neatly tidied up.
The only real area for improvement would be their communication in English. Most of the staff apart from the front desk speak little to no English so if you need some help around the ryokan, you may find it hard to get your message across.More
