Maisonette was wonderful. Upstairs salon with traditional ryokan furnishings and also bedroom with western style beds. We loved having our own private hot springs, one Inside and another outside in a peaceful woods setting. The public baths are also very nice. We especially enjoyed the "family bath" which can be reserved for private use. Meals were delicious and provided an opportunity to taste many different specialties. We would have appreciated a little more explanation of the various dishes, but nevertheless we enjoyed both the dinner and the copious Japanese breakfast. Very pleasant staff, always smiling, eager to please.
