4/5 Good

Travelled with group
Liked: Staff & service, amenities
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Beautiful scenic outdoor bath, comfortable beds, and good meals. Change rooms were clean, but very run down. Non-smoking room still smelled like smoke, which seems to be normal for big old ryokans. If you really want to avoid smoke, stay in a newer place. Staff was very helpful and friendly.
