Traditional multi-course meals feature healthy dishes based on menus from the ancient era. Locally homegrown ingredients including rice and wheat can be enjoyed.

    大人がのんびり、静かにゆったりできるお宿です。 お食事もとても美味しく、お風呂はこじんまりしていますが、熱めのお湯がとても心地良かったでふ。お宿の皆さんも感じが柔らかく大変丁寧でした。 夫の誕生日も兼ねてお伺いしましたが、ご主人からサプライズまでしていただけました。 また、夫の忘れ物にもすぐに気づいていただき、お電話があり、引き返すこともできました。 リゾートホテルに飽きた方にはオススメです! 女子旅やご夫婦で、母と娘で…そんなシーンが似合うお宿でした。 大変よかったです、ありがとうございました
