This was my favorite ryokan in Japan. Our room was very nice with a view of the river and city. We loved the soaking bath in our room and we all took baths every night- I want one at home now! The breakfasts were served in a nice dining room with a view of the river. Food was wonderful and staff was very nice. The location was also great, easy access to restaurants, public transportation, and taxis.

Only disappointing ryokan we visited during a four week trip. Avoid at all cost, not worth a penny.

Disappointing from beginning to end, after having enjoyed Japanese hospitality in many places, this was the absolute low in our holiday. Impersonal reception, refusing to book restaurants, telling stories about restaurants to be closed, which was not correct, lazy room service, beds were not removed during the day, Internet was not working, personal letters were read etc. etc. never, never, never again, avoid at all cost!
