- Tatami mat floors, sliding paper window doors, wooden terraces... Welcome to an authentic ryokan whose traditions have carried on for seven generations. Many of the rooms look out to a lush Japanese garden and its surroundings where Japanese pines and a variety of plants and trees, shade the moss covered statues and ponds. The experience would not be complete without enjoying the hot spring baths set in a grove of bamboo and the traditional kaiseki meals, whose small dishes rival in delicacy and offer the opportunity to taste Matsuba crab (seasonal) and Tajima beef.
