This is the first ever Ryokan I;ve stayed in and it was wonderful!
It was all very Japanese down to the Tatami floors and the small hall ways and removing your shoes at the entrance!
Though we arrived quite late (around 1030pm), the owner was very nice and polite and got up to show the foreigners to their room.
Everything was very clean.
Free flowing coffee is available... affordable beer (for Japan) was also available.
Several small shops are all within walking distance for excellent Japanese food.
Only draw back was that the heater was only displaying Japanese characters and thus we had some difficulty getting it to work properly.
