I felt healed by the time when I looked at the beautiful garden, such a peaceful moment different from our daily life. The cuisine is also impressive, its delicate color and taste please your five senses among the inns stayed past in Kyoto and Nara. If you leave the inn, it is a very calm and pleasant place at Sanzen-in. Speaking of which, having sake or water for drinking at night in the refrigerator, instant drip coffee or snacks in the room, Makes for a great evening for anyone who likes alcohol, including me. It's a nice accommodation with warm and courteous staff. + More
I was so satisfied with this stay including dinner and breakfast.Open air bath was also pretty good. I would definitely come again to stay here. + More
It was heavy rain that day due to the typhoon, I was worried that I could be late for dinner time, but I was able to arrive safely because the way was easy to understand. The food was very delicious. I was able to spend leisurely. I would like come again when the season brings in autumn leaves. + More
This place being right next to Sanzenin seems just the same, it's an irreplaceable location. The hot springs, that I did not expect, are pretty good quality springs, and I quietly enjoyed the open air. It's been awhile since my last visit, the meals have also gotten better it seemed. + More
I stayed over here last year I wanted to stay at Seryo-san, dip in the onsen, have delicious food, and just enjoy a relaxing time, so coming to Ōhara seems to be the right choice. Next time, I'd like to stay in the room which was opened in the autumn season with the attached open-air bath. + More
We stayed at the renewed Sakura suite. I wanted to go around temples etc. before check-in, so I went there two hours early. It was a feeling that not only the inn, but also the meal was well prepared. We got off the taxi and took our own baggage and entered the inn. We got greeted at the door and entered inside, and they picked our luggage. Because I wanted to deposit in the baggage beforehand, I asked for only tea. We were offered welcome drinks. After exploring the surroundings, we went to the inn. The room staff explained the equipment in the room. It's a nice courteous service where you are served without the staff being intrusive. After all, it was really good as it is nice to have an open-air bath in the room. The cherry trees in front of my eyes had some parts already blossoming. Then we had dinner. I had a reservation for Kaiseki cuisine. It was a little disappointing because there was no wine along with it when we ordered at first, but the wines turned out delicious so it was good. At dinner time, except for us, everyone there were international customers. The landlady was working hard by herself. I kinda felt that they were a little short on staff maybe. The taste of cooking was elegant and delicious true to Kyoto. Later, I slept relaxingly at night. After taking a walk in the morning, we had breakfast at our own pace, Boiled tofu was also gentle to the body. I brought my luggage to check out, but on the way there are steep stairs so I think that there should be staff to help those with bad feet or elderly people to take it because it's hard. I was informed the check-out time in advance, but the counter kept me waiting without anyone there. I wondered if it's just the slow paced countryside. I hope to go there again, but I expect that it will be a better tended accommodation at that time. + More
