The size of the room is big in comparison with the small rooms in a lot of Japanese hotels. The service in particular was above and beyond, I cannot say enough about the helpfulness and friendliness of all staff members.
My colleague together with me on this trip to Yamanashi was speaking Japanese. This helps as the staff don`t speak English.
Part of the decoration let us have a feeling of living in the Showa times. Both, breakfast and dinner was excellent. This Ryokan has a bamboo garden next door accessible to guests of Kikori and as well a spa (Onsen = Japanese hot spring and the bathing facilities).
This hotel is a good choice, if you want to try a local Japanese hotel.More
