The host was friendly, the room is big and beautiful, specific japanese.
It was too cold in the room. The heater with gas is not an option, i tried it one evening and the air was not breathable, I had to open the window for fresh air. The second night I didn't start the heater anymore and I was freezing. The walls are very thin, the windows are not isolated, you can see in some places directly outside.
It is a cheap place to stay for a whole room and there aren't many cheap places in Gora that are not hostels. I had dinner one night and it was delicious. It wasn't obvious if breakfast could be provided - certainly none was offered. It is quiet.
The house does feel very dated and quite tired. It is somewhat like visiting an elderly relative who has a big house that they haven't updated since the 1970s. The fixtures are tired and a bit grubby. . I found the house cold both literally and in feel . When you arrive there isn't any warm welcoming communal space or lounge to arrive into - Just a rather dim Corridor and bedrooms upstairs. So other than to sit in your room there is nowhere to go and relax. And on arriving you don't get that warming sense of being in your temporary home or where you could meet other guests. The heating was a moveable gas type stove fan thing (all in Japanese) in your room. I had to work how to use it (pushing buttons randomly until it came on) but had no idea how it worked and whether for example did it work thermostatically or just on and off. So I tended to have it on for say 30 mins then unplug switch off. I did not feel comfortable leaving a gas heating device on all night so it did mean by morning the room was cold. It's a pity a house like this does not have some form of underfloor heating. There was no real information on where to go or how to get there eg restaurants or to key landmarks. I found this out for myself or by asking in other establishments.
Very comfy and homy little ryokan, with a very nice traditional room. The Ibsen is small, but pleasant (no concern about privacy, as no more than two people can really fit in). Our host brought us a nice cup of tea in the morning. We had a great stay overall! Probably one of the best value ryokans around.
The place is a bit old, but it did not bother us. You can either use the cable car from Gora, or if you're brave and cheap like us, walk 10-15 min uphill
Welcoming host, early check-in possible without additional charges
Bathroom is a bit rustic
Very traditional Japanese Onsun. Traditional clothes and tea even provide for guests. Hot Spring bath was a major plus
