We chose this ryokan for its small size with only 6 rooms, some with western beds.
We were picked up from Minakami Stn by the Son who speaks good English. Although it’s close to the stn don’t attempt to walk as it’s uphill.
Our western style bedroom on the 2nd level has a separate seating area and an attached toilet. Beds were comfortable n the room was well heated.
There are 2 gender separated indoor baths . There’s also a private bath you can book with one free use that has a great view of Mt Tanigawa. Water was hot n slightly smooth, ph 8+.
The highlight for us were the great meals. We stayed 2 nights and items served were different and very tasty. The main dinner course was the same though, grilled Joshu beef; in fact we looked forward to this as it’s very tasty, tender with no visible marbling. The father is a traditional bamboo flute maker and there’s a flute performance at the end of dinner.
We will certainly stay here if we come this way again. More
