“Totally authentic romantic Japanese experience”
A remarkably Japanese experience: incredible service, unrecognizable food (all wonderful), and all very traditional. We were the only westerners there and it is about as far away from the usual generic western hotel vacation as you can get but still both luxurious and exciting. I couldn't recommend it more highly
“OK in general”
Ryokan is a difficult experience, not surely a must do, and maybe 1 night is enough... The young staff dedicated to the room are amazing and extremely polite, but the elder staff at the reception or front desk are not very helpful.. Very early check out (at 10 am).. Check in at 3pm is very strict.. Cannot give many hints on where to start touring the city or how to do it best.. The highway is nearby, so expect to hear cars (though from far) while you're in you futton! Finally, you would think that you're going to get more for your money's worth!
I realize this was supposed to be a traditional Japanese experience, but it was quite expensive for what you received. The cushions were quite old - there was nowhere to be comfortable inside the room other than pull in gout cushion to lay on. Food was good and the service was attentive, but it was not worth the money we spent.
“not good value for money”
way too expensive for the quality. the food was disappointing and the staff were overly obsequious, even by Japanese standards. made us feel uncomfortable.
