Very spacious and comfortable ryokan to stay. A lot of Japanese local food was served during dinner. We had very pleasant interaction with the two attendants that served our dinner. One lovely elder lady who tried to speak English to us and a younger lady that accompanies her; kept us entertained throughout dinner. Transportation provided to and from the nearest train station. Overall very nice stay. Also offer halal menu.

Our room was spacious with a good view of the lake. The 12 course meal was excellent, though too much to finish. The futon were a little hard and we missed having chairs to sit on. All in all, however, we found the hotel, food, and service tro be excellent.
