This family run Japanese Inn is very authentic and has some really beautiful Japanese gardens that can be viewed from most of the rooms. It is a little ways outside of the main city area, however it is well worth the trip. Some traditional Japanese Inns are not keen on accepting foreign tourists due to language barriers and apprehension at how the foreigners will act. Not this place. They welcomed us from the time we set foot through the front door and if you are unaware of how to use traditional facilities they are very happy to help you out.
The Japanese breakfast we had was one of the best I've ever eaten in the 20 years I've been travelling to Japan. We didn't try the dinner but it looked even more amazing than the breakfast. The hotel is very old style Japanese, but does offer things like free Wi-fi if you just have to have your fix.
I've already recommended to several friends and am sure they will like it just as much as we did.
