This is an ancient, very aristocratic place. Recently renewed, Tofuya is incredibly beautiful and comfortable. Also located at a beautiful place. There’s a little room for improvement, though. In a country known for the best food in the world, Tofuya lags a tiny bit. Also, it is most often the case that at a Ryokan you can eat dinner and breakfast in your room: that adds to the unique experience. Not here though. And that’s pity, but other than that, Tofuya is perfect!

We stayed here as a family and it was our first experience at a Japanese Ryokan. Our room/suite was very large with its own private onsen, an upstairs bedroom/living room, and a lower floor seating area with a central table. The room was definitely old Japan as I would imagine it but with modern amenities. It was very clean and comfortable. It was finished mostly in natural dark woods.

We were warmly greeted by the hosts and taken to a very nice reception area where we were served welcome drinks. Next, we were shown our room and introduced to the art of wearing Japanese robes (which were later required for dinner).

Dinner was quite the affair for us and was a very traditional multi-course Japanese meal. We donned our robes and took the short walk to the very comfortable dining room. To be honest, it was scary and we couldn't recognize most of the things brought to the table (apart from little tiny squids). Our host realized this group of struggling Westerners were not having a great meal experience and brought out cooked steak and chicken (off the menu and not by request). Amazing service!!

The grounds are very peaceful and pleasing. There is a bakery just a short walk up the trail that served delicious pastries and coffee. The bakery is adjacent to a large granite counter where you sit with your feet soaking in a hot onsen bath while enjoying your food and a beautiful view. It was a truly marvelous experience for all of us.

One of us tried the public onsen and found it to be a wonderful and sublime experience. We also tried the private onsen in our room which we couldn't get hot enough until we used the shower head to help fill the tub (it disperses onsen water too). It was cold outside and this may have affected the water trickling from the natural stone faucet into the tub. Still, it worked out great and was a rejuvenating experience.

This was an experience all of us will remember for a very long time and highly recommend it to others.

Room tip: Staff speaks limited English but are very willing to help.

We've been coming here for years and every time we are back in Japan we need to spend at least two nights for the bath, the food and the 6 hour Happy Hour! You can reserve a room with your own private bath. The grounds are beautiful and they have a nice bakery!

One of the best place I have even been. The services and food were also excellent. It was very helpful that I left my bag at the lobby when I checked out, the staffs sent my bag to Hong Kong within two days... Amazing. 非常完美的地方,服务和食品都是最好的。環境更不用说。真不想寫太多,怕以后订不到因为太多人知道。不过他们的服务绝对值得我给赞

It is a really good place for relaxing and purifying your mind. So regret to book just for one night and checking in so late at 6:30pm. I like the bakery cafe that is so different from those other onsen. Will definitely go again.
