名月荘 Ryokan Meigetsuso

Ryokan Meigetsuso  / Yamagata Yamagata・Zao・Tendo・Kaminoyama 57


"Meigetsusou" stands on the highlands that look out to the Zao mountain range in Kaminoyama-city, Yamagata. The Ryokan is situated on the premises of approximately 13000㎡
 and is surrounded by vegetation. The scenery may not seem like a Ryokan. 
However, it is well known as a first class Ryokan and well highly supported by those people who love Ryokans and know all of the charms of the Ryokan. 

Although there are many splendid points about Ryokan Meigetsusou, the best part is the hospitality that will make you feel comfortable as if you're at home.
When you arrive to the Ryokan, the owner and the staff will welcome you in Yamagata dialect. It is as if you're back at your parent's home. 

The concept of this Ryokan is "A Ryokan where you can find and feel Yamagata (Japan)".
A lot of people come to Yamagata in order to stay at this Ryokan, and enjoy the time during their stay in the Ryokan more than the sightseeing nearby. 

This Ryokan is a place that will make you feel as if you're relaxing at home although it is in a Ryokan. You can read a book, look out at the green vegetation and flowers or even sleep in a little. 

The first impression from outside is just a normal Japanese plain building, but as soon as you walk into the Ryokan an Asian Resort space should welcome you.

Read more この度は、本当にまた帰りたくなるようなおもてなしを頂き、ありがとうございました。 私が一番嬉しかったのは、予約係の方に、塩分制限のある母のお食事にご対応頂けるか尋ねたところ、大変心よく「できます!」と言って下さったことです。 このようなご対応をしてくださる旅館さんは、少なく、なかなか母との旅行は難しいです。 母を連れて行く楽しみが増えました。 お部屋や水回りなどは、やや古さが目立ちましたが、名月荘さんの出来る限りお客様の立場に立って考えて下さる温かさ、柔軟な対応は、素晴らしく感激致しました。 また伺うのを楽しみにしております。

Thank you very much for the hospitality you really want to return to. What I was most happy about was when I asked the reservation clerk if I could serve my mother's meal with salt restrictions, and said, "I can do it!" There are only a few inns that provide this kind of support, and traveling with my mother is difficult. The fun of taking my mother has increased. The rooms and the surroundings of the water were a bit old-fashioned, but I was impressed with the warmth and flexibility of Nagetsu-so from the customer's perspective as much as possible. I am looking forward to seeing you again.

忘れ物してしまい、申し訳ありませんでした。 細かい点をアンケートに書きましたが、アンケート通り、また行きたい宿に変わりありません。 やっぱりこれだけ安息感を持てるところはないと感じました。 またよろしくお願いします。

I lost something and am sorry. I wrote the details in the questionnaire, but as the questionnaire, it is still the hotel I want to go to again. After all, I felt that there was no place to have a sense of rest. Also thank you.
