The guest room is very good - no much to complain. There is no nature view from the guest room due to the restriction of the area. But from the half open-air bath there is japanese garden style view for you to look at. Also you do not need to worry about privacy. However, not that special and the bedroom... More

Our experience at Araya Totoan was wonderful and would definitely go again. We arrived at Kagaonsen station by JR and was picked up on time by the ryokan's shuttle. Upon arrival, we were shown to our room and greeted with green tea and mochi. The room was super clean and was divided into a living/dining area, bedroom, and bathroom with... More

However the place is magnificent with hot springs piped into the ryokan, excellent japanese quisine and sufficient english in the house to ensure that the stay is hassle free.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Araya Totoan`history extends back to 1639, starting with an order by the ruler of the Maeda Family, to protect the Yamashiro hot spring, which he owned. We have been running for 18th generations. You can enjoy Kitaoji Rosanjin`s works, Kutani ware and contemporary arts in everywhere our ryokan. Our ryokan is located in very near from Kanazawa-city,30 min by train, and from Komatsu airpot, 30 min by car. We hope our guests are able to feel the essence of traditional Japanese ryokan, and will offer you stillness,cleaness, a comfortable and relaxed environment. ... more   less
