Stayed here with my family (kids 6 and 9) two nights during new year 2012/2013. It was our first Ryokan experience and it was a very great introduction to traditional Japanese hospitality. The friendly service was great and the language barrier didn't matter. The kids were treated extra well and loved the beautiful robes that they got dressed in. Traditional Japanese breakfast is an acquired taste and the one on the first day of the year something extra... But it loved the experience. (the kids got more western stuff like juice etc). The bath was nice and relaxing. I would like to come back.
