I stayed on the second day of my cousin's trip with 6 people. On the first day there were 3 twin rooms, so on the second day we looked for a place where everyone could stay together, so it was nice to have a large room. However, the toilet lavatory was small and it was a little inconvenient to use by 6 people. The smiles and greetings of the staff are wonderful. The food was very good. Thanks for making a good trip.

I stay at a ryokan somewhere every month, but I think it has the highest overall evaluation so far. I didn't add 5 but it's 5 from COSPA. I stayed with an open-air bath in the room, but the room was large and the night view of Lake Biwa was great. I was surprised that there were 2 toilets. The dinner is gorgeous as you can't think of under 20,000 per person, and the customer service is very good. Breakfast is very normal. Last but not least, when I heard that I could get a service ticket for Hieizan Driveway, I wasn't told that it was out of stock if I wanted to get it at the time of payment.

Executive Satoyama Twin Room with outdoor bath


I can't close the open-air bath key from the room side, so I think that people will not come in because it is the 9th floor, but I felt a bit uneasy when I was sleeping. Others were very good. Thank you for your help.
