    The care that they put into making your stay as comfortable as possible. Staff is super friendly and reservations for breakfast and onsen are very accommodating. We especially enjoyed being able to privately enjoy the onsen!

    I loved the traditional old school Japanese feel to it. It was very close to Nanzenji Temple. I also loved that they had the option of a private onsen because I have tattoos. I'd definitely come back. Super affordable price too as well.
