The place is really close to the station but I had a bit of trouble looking for the entrance. Google maps showed the house number around the corner in front of the river when the entrance door is before you turn to the corner to face the river.
The ryokan was nice and clean when I first arrived. I had a bit of a trouble first checking in because they could not find my reservation. They quickly found it when I mentioned it was from Japanican (JTB) and they happily accommodated me afterwards. The ryokan staff was very nice to show me around the place and spoke understandable english. She also explained many ryokan customs and the dinner menu. They were very friendly. The owner came up to every dining table during dinner to welcome each guests and asked how they're doing. The onsen was nicely stocked with supplies for shower to bath. I enjoyed my experience in this ryokan.
