The design of the Ryokan is very good. The environment is perfect with bamboos surrounded. The staff are very friendly and attentive. We have to thank Tomo San, our host, for his warm hospitality. The in-room onsen and outdoor onsen are amazing. You have to reserve your outdoor onsen in advanced. The dinner is kinda fusion with traditional and modern...
