The food was great the location... couldn't be better. The building is interesting from heritage point of view. Might not be suitable for very old people as there are steep steps. But its an old house.. so that's character in itself.

Thoroughly enjoyed the Ryokan experience (our first). Spotless rooms and common areas. The yuzu bath in big wooden tub was a treat. Comfortable futon beds. The restaurant experience was amazing. Lovely room looking out to a waterfall over rock face. Each dish was a work of art and perfectly prepared. Some dishes will challenge you, but the whole idea was to experience a wonderful Japanese experience. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. We recommend Yuzuya Ryokan highly!

Great stay at Yuzuya!”

Our first stay at a ryokan. Staff at Yuzuya was terrific - they took time to explain some of the nuances that are unique to this type of hotel. Our room was clean and spacious. The futons are low and there are no western style sitting spaces in the room, so be prepared. If you have knee problems, this might be a challenge. We had kaiseki dinner and Japanese-style breakfast. Both were excellent!!! The kaiseki service was impressive. Timing was perfect and well coordinated for each course, including two tableside preparations. All of the food was thoughtfully prepared and delicious. I’ll note that we like lots of different kinds of food and have no dietary restrictions. Staff was also very responsive and helpful by email leading up to the stay. Pricing is fair. Not a bargain, but appropriate. Facilities are lovely, but the entrance has a staircase that could be difficult for those with mobility problems. Stairs in the obligatory slippers inside could be difficult, too. Highly recommend!
