This was our first stay at a ryokan and the experience was way beyond our expectations. Great location, attentive and friendly staff, excellent food and nice onsen experience. Our room was big, subtly decorated and clean. Would love to stay again if we are in the area. A 5 star experience of our stay and a highly recommended ryokan to stay at. My wife and I still often think of the wonderful stay we had at Kashiwaya Ryokan.
