The place was in Walking distance 5 minutes from the station. The lady spoke enough English to communicate about what is necessary in a place of accomodation. Although the rooms was a Smoking room there was no smell of smoke. The room in Japanese Style was excellent. Especially the evening meal you should not Miss but also the breakfast,if you like it Japanese was fantastic. The service could not have been better. We would always want to stay there again. We are glad to have found this Ryokan.
