A good place to visit if you’re looking for that traditional Japanese experience. Room looked really beautiful and nice. The morning meditation ritual was a amazing experience.

Good location. Very peaceful at night. A vegan heaven. They have different kind of tofu. The room is large with toilet inside. No refrigerator but vending machines out side the room are sufficient. Visitor can participate prayer at 6.30 am. A little bit expensive comparing to other ryokan in this area.
