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


The Ryokan is >100 year old and traditional setting (you even get to try a Japanese bath clothes!). Owner was very friendly and easy going.


Great place to stay, if other major places are gone. Very silent place but you might find it nice depending on what kind of group you go with. The bathroom was very normal and there was no big hot tub that is typical to Japan. But the caretaker was very nice and friendly and response was prompt. Overall 3.5/5 experience.
