While service was very friendly the first day, I felt it was getting colder as days passed. The best meal was also on the first day. I felt they could be more flexible with meal hours, this is not a ryokan after all. They were very helpful with a well-equipped first aid kit when I scraped my knee. They got us tour reservations for days 2 and 3. Finally, the last day, does check-out really have to be at ten? There are never any arrivals on that day, by definition. Of course, there is a beautiful beach right across the road. All the ingredients are there for a great stay, but it was only a good stay.
