This ryokan is located in a remote country setting, is built in a traditional style, has only 16 rooms, and each room has its own wooden tub attached to it (see photo above). Yes, this is onsen bliss.

The ryokan is on a large property, so plan on enjoying the peace, quiet, and spacious setting. The rooms are large and especially well-suited for families.

Also, for an additional Y2,000, guests can stay in the ryokan's free-standing cottage - which comes equiped with a private sauna.

The Buzz

One web report comments on the cottage's excellent massage chair and the ryokan's food, which reportedly comes slowly and over many courses.

Be sure to make time to enjoy the ryokan's garden area which is based on a traditional design.
