Ryokan Kurashiki, Kurashiki
This lovely inn, located in the middle of the Village’s historic district, was once a sugar wholesaler’s mansion. The house and its former sugar storehouse have been renovated to make five spacious and beautiful guest rooms. The inn is undoubtedly one of the best run inns in Japan for no detail is too small in ensuring guests’ comfort. A unique feature of this ryokan is that each room has beds thereby allowing a first time visitor to Japan to ease into the experience of staying at a Japanese inn. The finest ingredients from the Inland Sea are used to create the wonderful meals at this ryokan, which are served by gracious and attentive staff.
