A Charming Ryokan at great location
We love everything at Sawaya Honten. It's a quaint Ryokan at reasonable price, friendly and helpful host (operated by family). The room is spacious and well equipped, the traditional breakfast is healthy and delicious! It's located at the fringe of city with train station and bus stops within 5 minutes of walk. Highly recommended!

Amazing experience with Traditional Japanese style accommodation. The place is very clean and the mattress is super comfortable. Two of us booked a room up to 5pax, which is huge. There is private toilet and bathroom in our room. It is also a good experience to go to public bath. The double layer windows block all noise from the street. It is a quiet area anyway. There is PiPPA bike parking nearby. Thank you for the gentleman who carried my super heavy suitcase to our room. Salute!
