눉Despite the deference and curtoisie of the staff, the services offered are pretty basic for the cost. The onsen, for example, doesn't compare favourably to any Swiss village bath/badden.
눇It's a very traditional ryokan. We're able to enjoy traditional Japan.

눉Nothing! Other reviews mention the location as being too far from town, but I found this added to the peace and tranquility. Just be sure to be at Kanazawa station for one of the two return busses; they only go at 2pm and 5:40pm (and depart the accommodation at 7:31am and 9:06am). As long as you make it for one of these, there is no problem with the location.
눇Once in a lifetime experience. The staff here are fantastic; they would come to the front door as we put on our shoes, and they would all come out to wait with us for our bus into town. Most of the staff didn't speak much English, but a few spoke it quite well. As it was raining during our stay, they also helped by holding umbrellas for us as we handled our suitcases. It was a lovely touch to look back and see them all waving as the bus drove down the road into Kanazawa. During our meals, our beds would be quietly packed away and the table moved back to the centre of the room, ready for us to come back into our room, and set up again during dinner. It's attention to detail like this that makes the stay here so memorable. The gardens are beautiful and strolling through them makes a great start to the morning before breakfast. The meals are exceptional, both in presentation and preparation, all presented to us in a private room. The onsen is an essential experience here, and makes for a perfect end to a long day. The buildings are beautiful inside too, and the various lounge areas are very nice to sit in after a soak in the onsen. The rooms are spacious, traditional and comfortable. I highly recommend a stay here; it's truly a traditional Japanese experience.
