Although housed in a normal, modern building, inside the ryokan offers traditional Japanese elements including indoor onsen (traditional hot springs bath) on the 7th floor. Meal times are a feast...

With the drum banging when you arrive, your shoes being taken hostage, the tea ceremony, and sleeping on tatami mats was a culture shock, the people are so friendly and warm, you just go with it. Overall we had a wonderful stay. The meals were delightful and authentic, the rooms super clean.

The service was top-notch though. The staff remembered to bring out the right shoes for us every time when we wanted to go...

Flew in, rented our car and drove to Hida straight away. We arrived at 7pm just in time for dinner, supposedly we were meant to arrive after 7pm and offered sushi only. But upon arriving we were greeted, ushered to our rooms, freshened up and went to eat the kaiseki dinner. We chose the Hida beef dinner and ordered 2...
