It was a very good inn, but I thought it was dangerous for us old people because there was no handrail in the bathroom. The private family bath was also not open for ever, so when I went to see the state. The signboard said "the bathroom is occupied", but there was no one in it. + More

When I checked in, I was told that there was another room available, so they prepared a room of a higher grade and larger than the one I had reserved, which made my stay even more comfortable. I was very excited about the food, and although it's possible to the menu in the "This Month's Cuisine" section at the website, I chose not to see it, so that I could enjoy the fun of being served dish by dish. As I'm a local, maybe I'm used to having Imoni (a potato and meat soup), because I didn't find it different, and it felt heavy in my stomach too. I've visited some times, but this time the famous udon that I love wasn't in the menu; instead, there was a very autumn-like rice cooked with matsutake, which was delicious too, but I really missed the udon... I guess I'll have to leave the special udon for the next time... The space after you leave the bath is always comfortable, and I love to spend some time relaxing there. As I had decided to stay at Meigetsuso without looking at my watch, cellphone or TV, I started reading a magazine at that place, and got so absorbed that, when I realized, the day was already dimming, and I felt the autumn in the sounds of the insects. I love this space at all seasons. + More

This was my second stay. Everything was upgraded compared to last time and I am very satisfied with it. The open air bath in the room is very big and I had a great time. In addition, there are 4 types of baths, but it was a pity as I had no time and only went to one of them. I want to try all the baths next time. It's an inn you can boast about to anyone. + More

My friends told me that this hotel was good, so I decided to stay here too. The best thing was that there were several different baths. It was the first time I tried a standing bath. Besides it was possible to have breakfast in the living room, so it helped a lot that I was able to leave the futon as it was in the Japanese-style room. Concerning the food, they paid more attention to the quality rather than to the quantity, and it was delicious. I had plenty of time to relax before the check out at 11:30. If I have an opportunity to come here again, I would like to stay here. + More

This inn is one of my favorites and so I have been indebted many times. I stayed here with a fried who was here for the first time. I was amazed and was happy here. My friends understood why I come to stay here so many times. I loved the dinner without fail as well as the breakfast. I felt happy eating in the living room, in addition to that the time to check out was at 11:30 which was quite rare for Japanese style hotels. The"Tamakonnyaku" in the evening and also the "fresh juice" in the morning, at the place near the big bath where we could have a rest, were good. Because we were in a party of all women, we had no chance to turn on TV at all. I was free from my daily stress, and so I felt as if time has stopped being at ease. This Beauty Salon is superb, though I could not go there today. This is an inn with well facilitated and good consideration that I love so much that I cannot express my feeling writing in it. + More

We came here to celebrate the 77th birthday of my grandmother. I was thankful that we could enter the guestroom one hour earlier, as we got sick for the long journey. As thee facilities are not made barrier-free, I think it is not appropriate for elderly people, but the concept is to enjoy an extraordinary time in a hide-way inn, I think it is acceptable. As for the food, there were no special meal of the inn, so compared to an inn where I stay for the special sweet, I felt it was expensive, but I was convinced thinking that an investment for such a high grade facility was necessary. I bitterly complained, but I thought it would have been better that a woman had responded a call as I could not see the other end of the line, when I received a robotic response from a person of the same generation. The room was very clean and my grandmother was pleased as there were many place to take photos, but we left the inn, giving up an idea to stay there consecutively. + More

This time going to Sizuoka is my main purpose and I was thinking about staying for another night, then I remember my friend told me staying there was great and I booked. First, it was good I went there. For me the inn was little bit expensive to stay, but I could enjoy interior furniture, my room (rainbow), meals (a counter seat), and the service (the summer festival was just going on and thoughtful events entertained me). And the bath (I was pleased with my first time Tachiyu). It was my first time to stay there but I felt comfortable and felt as if I have visited there many times. At the outside gallery there was no staff, and I could have drink freely and spent a relaxed time sitting in a chair. I'm only praising, but there's nothing which made me uncomfortable, the staff's manner was good and I'd like to thank you for making me feel that I'd like to come back again. I could feel unobtrusive care. It's a good and memorable inn. + More

It's a relaxing ryokan no matter what time i'm here. The food was obviously great, and since the bedroom and the dining room are separate, so I could be lying around the washitsu (Japanese-style room) while the waitresses brought us breakfast and dinner quietly, from another passage. The main dishes were Yamagata beef or abalone, and both were very good. It was fun to see typical ingredients of Yamagata everywhere. In a large porch, there was a round konnyaku (a Yamagata specialty), cold tomato, cucumber and even shaved ice, which let me enjoy the air of summer. It is a luxury only allowed for adults to have draft beer while feeling the cool wind and listening to the sound of higurashi cicadas. There was a fireworks festival coincidentally and I enjoyed it as well. It is a ryokan I would like to stay at again. I will visit again. + More

My heart's desire was fulfilled with this being my second stay. It feels as comfortable as it used to, and made me want to stay longer. For this year's wild vegetables being early, the wild vegetables I was looking forward to was not that great, but I was again impressed at how good the rice tastes. I think the rice ball was the best...sorry. The room had the opposite view from before, and the greenery was beautiful. But, much to my dismay, I found myself waken up earlier than planed by a laud voice saying "You need to wake up for the hot spring, wake up, wake up..." in the early morning at 5:30, which I lamented my misfortune as if of a work of the devil, but let go because "Things happen...". I definitely like to go stay again. I hope for a quiet neighbour this time as well... + More

[Room and amenities] The yukuta lacks elasticity, so I don't really like wearing it to sleep, but they also prepared other pyjama which was quite comfortable as it was fresh and soft to the touch. I bought one the next day when I saw it selling in a shop. The organic pillow was also comfortable. The grainy feel of the carpet in the Western style room felt good against the sole of my foot. [Services] The person in charge was always attentive during our stay, and I had a pleasant stay. And I only noticed this when I left in the morning, but it made me really happy to see my car washed which was probably done at night. [Bathroom, bath, onsen] My family visited nearly all the bath, and they love the private bath that was deep enough to stand in. And although it is also available in every room, they still prepared towel and bath towel in every bath, perhaps because they assumed that people would use them many times. [Facility/Equipment] I had a good impression of quiet atmosphere visually. The building itself does not look new, but the maintenance is well kept. From the firewood placed at passing through the gate from the parking lot to a fire with charcoal in the restroom of the room, I felt their consideration about scent. [Meal] When I stayed, the main dish was the Yamagata beef, this time there were a lot of edible wild-grass dishes (sansai and migaki-nishin's nabe were especially delicious), so my elderly mother was satisfied. The rice leftovers were made rice balls as a late-night snack by them. [Satisfaction] I felt this was the best course for a lady's session as a whole. This time, my family visited together, they would like to come again because everyone was greatly satisfied. I would like to visit again too. + More

Arriving at the inn being send-off by the full bloomed cherry blossoms in front of the stations. My mother who was tired of walking seemed happy with the greetings from all of you. As for the meals we could enjoy the seasonal menu. The facility was big and I could take a walk around as times allows, and thanks to you, I could spend a relaxing time. Next time, I would like to visit with my family. + More

I'm physically disabled a little bit and can only sleep in a bed, so I selected the room and stayed but was surprised as the width of the bed is narrow though it's the high-grade inn. About the high-grade inns, I have only stayed in a Japanese and Westrern style room, however, even when I was sleeping I had a feeling of uneasiness and couldn't sleep well, so I was very much disappointed as the rest was wonderful and I could be satisfied. If the width of the bed becomes wider, I would visit and stay for two nights or more in a row, so, I am satisfied this much. + More
