We had a whirlwind visit of 1 night to Kamesei Ryokan and wished we could stay longer to enjoy the Ryokan and all the local area has to offer.
Mari and Tyler are lovely, welcoming hosts and made sure we knew where everything was (how to use the onsen etc.)
Our room was cosy and spacious (what a combination!), and we slept so soundly.
We opted for the kaiseki dinner, which is a fabulous choice for those who want to taste a spectrum of Japanese food. It was tasty and beautifully prepared. (Just a quick note here - if you're a plain or picky eater, Japanese food includes a lot of fish, assorted veggies and food you may not have come across before. That being said, I'm guessing from previous posts that they guys at Kamesei Ryokan will do their best to look after you if you let them know about any dislikes or allergies in advance.) Anyway, we loved ours
The onsen were probably my favourite part. It was a tough choice, but I'm missing my bathtub at home, so the onsen got the win there!
Thanks for a restorative and relaxing stay guys!
