The location is really good. Just next to the bus station and at the center of the famous sight seeings. This is a typical onsen ryokan. The hotel's atmosphere is very classic Japanese high class standard. Everything here exceeded our expectations.Staff were friendly and accommodating. The service we received was excellent, they made us feel very welcome and helped us with any inquiry we had. Most of the rooms are aside by the river with an excellent view. The room is comfortable and can see the beautiful mountains from room. Onsens for men and women are separate. There are two indoor ones and one outdoor one for each side. The ryokan is on other side of the street where you can get off the bus at Jinja stop. We were happy with everything about this hotel! All in all its a very pleasant stay here.
