The 7 of us stayed in three very unique house with our own private onsen, each house has their own design and taste, with both an outdoor and indoor private onsen. The Ryokan itself seems quite old, but the buildings and the facilities are all well maintained, the only problems I can think of is the very slow drainage in one of the onsen bathrooms, and the public onsen is a bit on the small side, probably can only fit 4 comfortably. Dinner and breakfast on the other hand are very delicious, dinner in particular is very well presented.
Staff are very helpful and friendly, staff called me two days in advance to confirm our booking, and ask about food allergies and transport method. One of us left a cardigan in the room when we check out, the hotel staff actually drove into town and searched for us to return the cardigan 3 hours later.
Thanks again to the staff that came looking for us! Your hospitality is much appreciated.
