Very welcoming family run ryokan. The matriarch is a delightful lady, always cheerful and pleasant. All the service staff in fact really excelled in making us welcomed. As the ryokan is a old historic building ,don’t expect big sprawling rooms. Ours was a small but clean and adequate room. There a few in house baths, including a mixed one and foot bath but as the building is old, these are basic. Do opt for the Yori no Mori which is a nice outdoor bath in the woods. It’s 5min away by car but you will be fetched there. Do note there are no shower facilities there ,so you will still need to use one of the in house baths to shower. The ryokan is near to the Naruko gorge where the autumn foliage is spectacular. The Kokeshi museum is also nearby. This is highly recommended especially if you are looking for unique gifts to bring home. We had a memorable stay which was topped off with a photo with the staff on the day of our departure. Highly recommended!
