This isn't only a ryokan, it's a part of Japan's history.
We had the impression to experience the Japan you can see in movies...at the time of the samourais.
We booked a luxury corner room in the main building and felt we made the good choice. Try to stay in the main building to feel the real magic of this place. Yes, the bathroom is old but a modern bathtub would definitely not suit in this building.
We spent the evening reading about Japan's history near the beautiful garden.
But the experience wouldn't be complete without a nice dinner. And wow...this is probably the best food we had in our entire trip. Everything was so beautifully prepared and served. Actually we hesitated between the Hiiragiya and the Tawaraya just across the street and finally chose this one because we heard the food was better...And now we are sure we made the right choice.
Don't hesitate, Japan is certainly a once in a lifetime trip so go for it, even if it's only for one night.
