Ryoutei Ryokan Yasui / Shiga Hikone・Nagahama 21


Ryotei Ryokai Yasui is located near the foot of "Hikone castle," a national treasure holding 400 years of history. It has been preserving its Japanese tradition and taste since its foundation in 1869.

The joy of staying in Yasui begins with admiring it's main gate.
The beautiful garden, tastefully laid stone pavement, and antiques decorated at the main entrance will make you feel enriched at the beginning of your stay.

Each accommodation is decorated with seasonal flowers and carefully selected furniture and has a view of the thoroughly treated Japanese Garden. You will be fulfilled with the colors of four seasons.

The “Omotenashi” from this Ryokan, located next to the largest lake in Japan, it is where signature cuisines are created by a Master Chef using all locally captured food in Shiga. Every mouthful of food will bring you happiness.

The outdoor spa with the sound of nature and great landscapes is indispensable. This is something you cannot miss during your holiday away from your everyday routine.

The name 'Yasui' is related to the lord of Hikone from the ancient period. Rest, relax and ultimately enjoy your ultimate journey in this traditional flagship Ryokan.

It was very healed this time. The food was also delicious slowly. The bath was also reserved for some reason and I was able to relax. I would like to visit again every year because I want to go to Taga Taisha's annual festival on November 8th. Thank you for all your thoughts. I went to Biwako Terrace. Thank you very much.

Read more 観光も程々に少し早いかと思いましたが 宿に向かいました。チェックインをするまで、1時間ほどありましたが、雨がキツくなってきたので 中で待たさせて欲しいお願いしましたが、追い出されました。電車で来たので、激しい雨の中、雨宿りする場所もない住宅街をひたすら歩き待つ羽目になりました。 0歳児の子供をベビーカーに乗せて雨の中1時間ひたすら外で待つのは非常キツかったです。(適当な喫茶店などがありませんでした) 一般的なホテルでは、ロビーに待合室があり チェックインは出来なくても、待つ場所があり 荷物も預かってくれます。 そういったこちら都合の常識の中できたせいもあるから、やす井さんの常識とは異なっているかもしれませんが、これから利用するお客に対して 「当方は待合室もなく、宿でチェックインまで待つ事が出来ず申し訳ございません。近辺であれば、この辺りまで行けば雨を凌ぐ事ができる場所があります」 など、謝りと案内ぐらいあっても良かったと思います。 残念ながら、早く来すぎだ客に対して、笑顔で出迎える事なく、不遜な態度で私たちを出迎えて頂き、気持ちは、がっくりきております。 伝統と格式を重んじる事は良い事ですが、顧客ファーストの観点で、もう少しきめ細かい対応を頂きたいと思います。

I thought sightseeing would be a bit faster I went to the inn. It took about an hour before I checked in, but the rain was getting harder I asked you to wait inside, but I was kicked out. Since I came by train, I was just waiting to walk in a residential area where there was no place to stay in the rain. It was very hard to put a 0-year-old child in a stroller and wait for an hour in the rain. (There was no suitable coffee shop) A typical hotel has a waiting room in the lobby Even if you can't check in, there is a place to wait He / she keeps baggage. It may be different from Mr. Yasui's common sense because of this common sense of convenience, but for customers who will use it in the future “We are sorry that we don't have a waiting room and can't wait for check-in at the inn. If you are in the vicinity, there are places where you can surpass the rain.” I think it would have been nice to have an apology and guidance. Unfortunately, customers who come too early are not greeted with a smile, but welcome us with an insidious attitude. It is a good thing to respect tradition and formality, but I would like to receive a little more detailed response from a customer-first perspective.
