Good ryokan
Water in onsen, scenery, dinner(kaiseki) and breakfast are absolutely good and staffs are very kind. I’d like to find bad experience but there is no bad thing. I recommend that yamashinobu is good for everyone.

控えめな夕食だったけど 素晴らしい滞在でした
センスのよい設えで、もちろん清潔 24時間のかけ流しの内風呂が部屋に備わる贅沢 ひさしぶりに親子川の字の3式の寝具をならべてくつろぎました 夕食はおいしいけどちょっと量や品数は少なめ 朝食も上品だけどあまり特徴のない内容 サービスはやさしく、適度な距離感 気持ちよくすごせました

정말 좋았던 료칸
부모님 만족도 최고였어요 앞서 2박은 다른 료칸에서 묵었는데 여기가 제일 좋았고 방도 산속이지만 따뜻했고 가이세키도 좋았고 밤에 천문관측 서비스도 좋았고요 직원분들이 무엇보다 행복해보였고 친절하셨습니다. 송영이 되어서 쿠로가와 역에서 왔다갔다했어요 다음에 재방문 또 하고싶어요

Total 7 onsens with 3 can be private used to share with 6 rooms. Not difficult to get a private onsen with family on every night. Food is good. Public transport is not convenience. Quite around the place. Good place for holiday.
