Dear Anna,sorry but the system doesn´t allow us to write the email. They have a Facebook page with all their info. Please chekc it out. For making a reservation, you have to send them an email. Write the dates, number of guests, room type (with or without bath) and they´ll answer you in a day or two. Good luck and enjoy your trip. This is a really nice ryokan, by the way. The owners are very nice people. Try the Japanese breakfast if you can.
