very nice stay
Very close Kagoshima airport. We’re greeted at the entrance and they parked our car and moved our luggages to our rooms while we were enjoying the welcome drinks and snacks. Service was exceptional. The place is very relaxing as it is not very big and grounds are well appointed. The onsen is very nice. We had a wonderful stay.

The dinner was luxurious and of high quality. Very personalised service with detailed explanation of each dish as well as the property and welcome tea when we first arrived. Property is abit old and faded to me but for some that may be an attraction itself due to the rustic look. It is located in a residence area but once in the ryokan you feel like you are shut off from the rest of the whole. Beautiful central Japanese garden with a perfect view for breakfast. Brought my parents there and they loved it so much, it is the perfect place to rest and relax and just unwind always from the hustle and bustle of life.

Very peaceful place in a very peaceful city. The onsen was also clean and well maintained. Room was good and large enough for two. Highly recommended for people who're interested in a ryokan. The only thing which I had expected more could be the food. Food wasn't bad at all, just a bit less excellent than the food that I took in the local restaurants -- had to compare since most food're the same kind.
