This is my first experience spent a night in ryukan and also my honeymoon trip, all the staff is very friendly and helpful, language slightly a problem but we can understand each other. Room is very clean, food also very nice. When me and my wife arrived, there is already snow around the hotel, so that night we could really enjoy the open air onsen with a clear nice night (we can clearly saw the star) with slightly snow covered around. It's really a memorable honeymoon trip to spent the night at Kaniyu. Eventhough it's far from Tokyo, the access actually quite easy. Thanks to all Kaniyu staff, we really enjoyed and happy spent the night there. Surely will visit this place again in our next trip to Japan.
