We were exceptionally happy with room , service, meals etc at the Tawaraya Ryoken. It was our first experience in a Ryoken and we couldn't have been happier. The room was immaculate, quiet and serene. It enabled us to relax in a way that is far beyond what we have experience an any North American retreat . Highly recommended and we are glad we selected Tawaraya. All the credit to my wife who does very thorough research .
