Kasei Room in February
I heard this ryokan was built in 1914. My expectations for the upkeep were met. I loved the old, Japanese country-side feel to this place. It was a couple's trip in the Kasei room. Much bigger then I assumed. Plenty of space for a couple to enjoy. The garden view with the springs flowing is absolutely breathtaking. It's only too bad that as a traditional ryokan I presume, they board up the windows at night. I would have loved to see the stars and sunrise with that garden from our room. Also, this hotel is very easy to get to, and was a very easy walk to the Open-Air Museum. And the kaiseki dinner was quite an experience, a delicious one, too.
