After the first satisfactory visit 2 years ago, I brought my family to Yuzuya this time. The location is excellent and the building is very nice.
We had 2 rooms: 1 room has a lovely view of the waterfall and another just have windows looking out to a car park. During my first stays 2 years ago, I had a room near the front entrance and it was extremely noisy. I asked for quiet rooms this time and they were a lot better. I stayed in the room facing the car park, but hardly heard any traffic. I occasionally would hear the big bell at Yasaka shire, but apart from that, it was quiet and peaceful.
Both rooms have hinoki cypress bath tubs. I actually preferred the public bath as it’s a lot more spacious. They don’t have many rooms, so the public bath wouldn’t be over crowded. We always had the bath for ourselves due our 2 nights there.
Breakfast and dinner were as good as usual. The meals at Yuzuya were not the most luxurious ones that I had in Japan, but I actually like them a lot. I like the hint of yuzu citrus fruit in their dishes.
The owner and the staff there were helpful. They help me send my suitcase to my hotel to Tokyo and carried our luggage to the taxi when we left.
