Out from an outer space, this ryokan seems a 100% japanese style, with a few leaflet or staff for foreign travellers. Like a no man's land hidden deep in the forest mountains, it provides nevertheless a real sens of comfort, space, pays attention to food quality and its open air and mixed onsen is really great. Probably much more pleasant in full spring or autumn, as nested in the woods. Roads to Kamikochi or other alpline valeys of interest quite easy. A true experience.
