While this place is technically

While this place is technically a "ryokan" it has none of the warm hospitality usually associated with such establishments. It also gives one the feeling that if the economy was better they wouldn't accept foreigners at all. The staff are not helpful.I have stayed at minshoku that are better than this. Its location though is excellent.
