This is my third Ryokan experience and by far the best. The Hotel is 30 min on Taxi from Train Station and 20 from tourist sites. But don't let that deter you. The hotel is more beautiful than what the pictures show. Lots of attention to detail all over. The onsen with views of the waterfall amazing. Our room was large with an in suite onsen, well appointed and tastefully decorated. The service was impeccable and they were very accommodating, even when my wife could not eat any more raw fish they adjusted dinners for her. This ryokan is the real deal, we were the only non Japanese guests while we were there and they made us feel very welcome and we had a true experience.
