スタッフの方皆さんがとても暖かく、常に笑顔で対応していただきました。 食事もすごく美味しく、お腹いっぱいだったのに朝も夜も全て完食してしまいました。すごく良い思い出になりました。 ありがとうございました

The staff was very warm and always responded with a smile. The meal was also very delicious, although it was full of stomach, everything was completed in the morning and the evening. It was a very good memory. Thank you very much

Although I stayed without knowing the name of Ryokan, which is a famous ryokan in Besshi Onsen, it was truly the best hospitality, hot springs and cuisine. The deliciousness of the cuisine was exceptional and I finished it. Also, I was touched by the hospitality of those who took meals, the politeness of sightseeing guides, and the abundance of knowledge. The inn was quiet and relaxed. This inn is a wonderful place to recommend to everyone. thank you for helping me. Thank you very much. I would like to go to stay again.
