Definitely worth staying in a ryokan if visiting japan. This particular one was lovely. The staff were so helpful and polite. As soon as we entered our room we received green tea and a lady showed us how to put on our traditional Japanese robes....More
We booked one night at this ryokan as we were after a typical ryokan experience and didn't want to leave Japan without this experience. Our expectations were high as we had heard many positive things about the ryokan experience. Our experience at Senkyoro unfortunately fell...More

Hello, we were hoping to follow a similar itinerary when hosting a guest from overseas, and having experience with the area, this is what is recommended: Check in at the check-in time. (Regrettably, Japanese inns typically don't allow early check-in.) Enjoy the inn to the fullest extent, bathing and walking around the lovely gardens and paths nearby, then enjoy dinner in an leisurely manner, bathe some more, and sleep well. Then, the next day, check out on time (10:00 am) or earlier, and take the public bus (or taxi) to Gora Station to catch the cable car to the ropeway. You may consider stopping at Owakudani (though the paths have been closed there recently), as that is the ropeway's transfer station, then continue on to Lake Ashli. From there, you could take the pirate shop cruise, which offers nice views, to the other end of the lake, where you could catch a public bus back to Yumoto, and then back to Shinjuku by train or bus.
