I am indebted to you overnight in two days. Arrival was delayed and the parking lot became distant, but please send it to the ryokan by minibus, or in the next morning, when we inform the front desk that the parking lot is far away, that person will be happy to send it to the car in the minibus I got it. The parking lot was mistaken for being far away, and I was moved by the warm action and words of that person. Thank you very much. Although it was the second Suimei Hall, I was moved by the bath of the source of the room.

老舗なのかもしれませんが、接客レベルが低くてビックリしました。 無理かもしれませんが、初心にかえって頑張ってください。

It may be a well-established store, but I was surprised that the level of customer service was low. Although it may be impossible, please do your best instead of being a beginner.

I stayed overnight with my husband and grandmother and three grandmothers in Okawakaka's open-air bath plan. A little disappointing ... It is a large public bath. The bath of Sansuikaku is deep in half way, but is there some reason? When I was sitting, I got soaked in my face and there was no place to sit (hot water was coming out where I could sit down) I could not do long baths halfway. Also I checked in at the big bathhouse of Okawakaku until 17 o'clock early, but I was sorry that I could not get in while I was bright. Afterwards it seems wonderful whether the seafood enters cheaply if the cooking is a hotel by the seaside, and the water bamboo hall of the mountain section was a bit inferior. (Although it is a comparison of the same price level ...) Although it is comprehensively fair evaluation, is it better if the grade of cooking improves at the same price a little more? It is like a kanji.
