Traditional Ryokan
There were many ladies we met during our stay and each was helpful and accommodating. It was a very rainy day so they let us borrow umbrellas and one of them went outside and hailed a cab for us. The sleeping arrangements are mats on the ground but it was one of my best nights of sleep of our 2 week honeymoon. Breakfast was okay. No westen options. Not my favorite and not the worst. I’d say very average but the hospitality was excellent, the area was so cute with lots of little shops and restaurants. Overall we really enjoyed our stay.
