What impressed us is the obliging staff in the hotel. When we arrived the hotel car park under heavy rain, 3 staff already showed up to offer assistance. Two of them picked up our backpack and luggage. The rest opened the umbrellas for us and guided us into the hotel. When we stepped into the very decent lobby, 3-4 staff...

We spent just a night here to be close to Takachiho gorge. The hotel is small but it's elegant with pretty Japanese garden. You can feel that you are VIP guest since your step inside the hotel. A number of staffs who sit on the tatami floor at lobby will bow their heads to welcome you. The room is comfortable,...

This is easily the best Ryokan I've ever stayed at. We only stayed one night and our only regret is that we did not stay longer.

Stayed two nights, to allow for the numerous activity on offer in this provincial mountain resort town called Takachiho. I personally think Kyushu is under-rated due to distance and time it takes to get there but highly recommended and would like to help the locals out! Ryokan: Friendly and very attentative service from arrival until departure. The 'Waka-Okami' and her...
