Well maintained hotel in Jozankei. Hotel provides free valet parking and there will be a group of enthusiastic staff who will wait by the front door in the evening, eagerly waiting for guests and helping guests with their luggage. The lounge on the lobby level provides complimentary coffee and tea in the morning till 10 am and complimentary honey buffet from 4pm to 10 pm. The honey buffet comes with delicious crackers, yogurt and dango, and tea and coffee.
The rooms are spacious enough for all 4 of us to open our luggage at the same time so the room is not small. Beds are comfortable and dinners/breakfasts are typical ryokan quality. Dinner is served in the room and we were stuffed by the time the last few courses came up. The breakfast dining restaurant has beautiful views of autumn leaves and the gorge.
From the hotel, several places of interests are within walking distance.
Gave a 4 star rating because it meets (but did not exceed) my expectations of a Japanese ryokan.More
