Lovely ryokan. Bedroom was beautiful, warm and cozy. Host was very sweet, helpful and friendly. In an atmospheric old neighbourhood. Perfect traditional Japanese experience.


Ryokan Sanki was very clean and in an excellent location. There was a cute little local coffee shop just around the corner and a supermarket and 7-11 within a 10 minute walk. The toilet room was very small, just enough room to enter and sit down.


Very clean and in an excellent location. The toilets were rather small though, and no instructions in English for how to operate all the buttons on the toilet. Otherwise, we had an excellent stay and would come again.


I had a wonderful time once again at Sanki! Yochi-san is such a kind and thoughtful host! She went out of her way to make my stay as comfortable as she could! Arigato gozaimasu!


The landlady is absolutely nice!very helpful. Even if she almost doesn't speak English she makes big efforts to communicate😊
