This place is the epitome of a Japanese ryokan experience. It has the setting and the amenities to offer you the most relaxed stay. Did I also mention the food? It's civilization at its best. Hint: when staying at a ryokan like this one, always check in the closets for extra mattresses to add to your bedding. They usually only... More

We must preface our remarks that we are decidedly not “typical” foreign visitors to a ryokan. Although we were visiting Tachibanaya on a trip from our home in the United States, in the past, we (a married couple) both have lived many years in Japan, and have stayed dozens of times in various ryokan. This was, however, our first visit... More

I stayed in similar hotels (ryokans) but this one was probably the best. Here, you will experience lots of the traditional japanese things: onsen, food, tatami-matted rooms, ... The staff is very helpful and make the effort to fulfill your requests even though the language barrier could be a problem. Rooms, toilets, onsen, and in general all the facilities are... More

Very clean hotel with superb amenities. The onsen is quite nice and the facilities are dated but clean. Stayed at a Japanese-styled room and it was superbly comfortable. The separate toilet from the shower was quite a treat. The only issue we had is that most of the staff does not speak (or understand) English, so we had to communicate... More

The hotel doesn't look very grand but the interior is nice. The room is simply beautiful. I have this pleasant feeling when I stepped into the room. Dinner was simply superb. At the onzen, I had the experience of using the best massage chair I have ever comes across. Unfortunately, I couldn't remember the brand of the chair...

Tachibanaya is a traditional ryokan with its own garden, onsen and Okami. The building looks like it could need a fresh coat of paint from the outside but the interior is clean, well maintained and it looks new. I like the traditional Japanese feel in the building. The onsen is awesome. There are two baths for each sex; one on... More

We came here after climbing Dewa Sanzan. We stayed at the summit of Mt Gassan the night before, so we were ready for some luxury. At the station we asked about a courtesy bus, but were told to take a taxi. A passing woman advised us to take the bus, which was cheap and quick. On the way back, the... More
