I have stayed at Shima Onsen Kashiwaya Ryokan three times so far, and I’ll certainly go back. The whole stay is wonderful, and the staff is very friendly and helpful.
As it is very difficult to have vegetarian meals in Ryokans in Japan, I was extremely happy that Kashiwaya Ryokan offers a vegetarian option. And the fact that dinner is served in your private room is also a great.
Besides the lovely staff and the delicious meals, I especially enjoyed the private onsen, which allow you to relax and enjoy the surrounding nature.
