Oh, the hotel was beautiful. It was a creaky old ryokan-yado-ish thing, and it oozed antiquity. Built in 1907, Yasunari Kawabata stayed here, so it was fitting that we did too, as we were retracing part of the route of The Izu Dancer. I loved the veranda and the single-paned glass and the ancient vanity and the garden. Plus it was quite reasonably priced. Oh yeah, and rotemburo. Recommended.
