Quintessential Japanese Omotonashi. I booked for one night and stayed for three because Junko, James and the staff made me feel so welcome and taken care of!
This ryokan is now being run by the sixth generation of the family. The traditional Tatami rooms are large with expansive views of the River and Oohashi Bridge. Fresh flowers throughout the Ryokan - in the public spaces, hallways and in my room - Tokonoma, the formal display alcove, AND even in my bathroom - were refreshed daily. The 2nd floor restaurant is a real treat. Beautifully designed and built Japanese rock garden, individual seating dining rooms both Japanese and Western each with their own entrance.
Junk upgraded me to a top floor Tatami room and James gave me thoughtful historical, cultural and travel info and ideas.
I would like to bring my parents to Oohashikan next year, and have James show us around the region and get us access to the many special makers, farmers, etc Junko and James are friendly with
I will be back!More
