We stayed at Ryokan Kato at the end of December in one of their log house rooms and really appreciated the welcoming and friendly atmosphere. There is a small onsen indoors and outdoors which can be used in the mornings and evenings. Wonderful. Yoshinoyama is a really exceptional place and we very much enjoyed being there in off season. It was so nice to be in a completely quiet place. Excellent for hiking. Breakfast was sumptuous, really, really delicious and we had a great view over the valley. Thank you so much for your warm hospitality!!!
