This modern Japanese ryokan combines the main elements of a traditional Japanese inn - personalised service, hot-spring bathing facilities and multi-course dinner feasts - with the polished, up-market ambience of a luxury hotel.
Rooms are simply furnished, in keeping with this style of property, but the 'omotenashi' (service) is unparalleled. From the meticulous green tea welcoming ceremony, through to in-room dining, graceful kimono-clad staff are on hand to attend to every request with a smile and a bow.
Leisure: Shared bath and onsen facilities
Rooms: 28 rooms & suites
Wander along the ancient trails of Kumano Kodo and its spiritual shrines, enjoying the peaceful, and enchanting surroundings as well as taking in the hospitality of local families along the way.
