The owners/staff made every effort to make sure my stay (first time at a ryokan) was a pleasant and comfortable one. They were friendly and welcoming. A pot of green tea and a sweet were served as soon as I'd checked in. The young woman was very nice and taught me some Japanese words as she served me a delicious evening meal in my room, and the next morning breakfast. All the food was excellent and beautifully presented. The ensuite had a very deep bath with toiletries and towels provided. The ryokan is just a short walk from the station but can be a little hard to find the first time. It is also close to Nishi Hongan-ji and Higashi Hongan-ji and there are some interesting shops, including a shop with wonderful hand-painted fans, just around the corner.
