As the last leg of our trip in Japan we spent two wonderful days at Shimizu Ryokan. After spending two weeks in Japan's major cities it was lovely to visit the small town of Yunohira surrounded by Japan's extraordinarily beautiful nature.
The service by the staff was perfect. When we first arrived we were picked up from Yunohira station and were also driven to visit Yufuin. Each member of the staff was exceptionally helpful and kind.
The room was lovely. The view outside was beautiful. We had the best night's sleep of our trip on the comfortable futon.
Breakfast and dinner were both excellent and gave us a chance to enjoy out a variety of Japanese delicacies.
The bathing area was superb. It was wonderful to sit back and relax in the hot spring bath after a long day out.
Visiting Shimizu Ryokan was the high point of our trip. At first we planned on staying at Yufuin, but that would've been a mistake as the peaceful atmosphere at Yunohira was just what we needed.
