I've got to say that I love this ryokan. The room was spacious for two, and clean. The food was delicious. I even kept a menu, which I did not understand much (I don't speak Japanese), because it was lovely. The surrounding was very beautiful in the autumn. The staff there spoke English quite well. They were very helpful, even helping me book a restaurant for the dinner. They came to understand that I was not comfortable having meals in the bedroom, they set the breakfast in another room when it was available. They were also very friendly, just like a family. I remembered one night when my husband and I could not find the restaurant we planned to have dinner, it seemed that the whole staff knew and asked us about that when they met us. I will definitely come back to this ryokan once I have a chance.
