The one thing you have to remember when visiting and staying in a ryokan is that the rules are slightly different! They will interrupt you to set up your futons for the night. They will wake you up for your breakfast - they will need to put the futons aside before they can move the table in for you to eat! They will need you to tell them the time for your meals. You must use slippers, they will bow deeply (sometimes on their knees with their foreheads touching the floor)... the list goes on. But it's a deep cultural experience and this ryokan does it amazingly well.
We got the best room and our children had fun feeding the koi in the ponds. We enjoyed the town too, and the short ride up to the mountain in the cable car was nothing spectacular, but gave you a glimpse of the sea nonetheless. The food was amazing. I finished a book (yay!) and my husband and middle child loved the onsen baths!!More
