It is a historical place once belonging to a member from the Imperial family. The current members try to uphold some of the old traditions. Our room overlooked the garden as was very spacious. Our first breakfast was served in a sitting room upstairs which was private. The second morning in a beautiful room overlooking their beautiful garden. Beautiful service and delicious food Japanese one morning and Continental the next. A gorgeous Ryokan experience.
