We loved our stay here! The staff was incredibly nice and welcoming. The cuisine was INCREDIBLE! It was delicious and beautiful and graciously presented, we had two of our most impressive meals in Japan here at Kohryokuen Nishisei. It was lovely walking around the town and our room was comfortable and large. We had no problem with a "smoking" room (we are non-smokers) there was no smell. The entire place was clean and so well run by caring, lovely people. It was a wonderful time! Also the staff from Japanican telephoned us to help with storm road conditions, really terrific service!!
