Top notch service and facilities
The place was great. We arranged for them to pick up our luggage first from the bus stop so that we could stroll around the streets of Kurokawa, and they came back to pick us up again at check-in time. The baths especially the outdoor ones were spectacular. Dinner was the usual fanfare of many small courses and we were impressed. Attention to detail - the staff noted from dinner that my friend was left-handed and placed the chopsticks and spoons "the other way round" for breakfast the following day. We were pleasantly surprised by this thoughtful and heart-warming gesture.

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
