Loved the private Onsen after a day of hiking. The Japanese dinner and breakfast were amazing.
Futons were a little hard for us unaccustomed westerners.
Shuttle service was great.
Sad, sad, sad place. This hotel is the high end of the low end, if you get my drift...It's the crème de la crap. The room itself was sad and tired and the mattresses provided had urine stains on them. The Onsens are sad, the food is absolutely repulsive and served in a depressing cafeteria with a view over a deserted, drained and stained swimming pool. The halls are lined with crumbling boutiques selling vulgar tchotchkes. There is a general din to them.
The view from the newly constructed room was attractive. But the room itself was sad and tired and the mattresses provided had urine stains on them.
Mineral spring private onsens
Nice onsen experience for self-drivers
No offer of a shuttle to pick us up, we only knew there was a shuttle when we arrived :/ it's complicated and a long trip to get to the hotel on a public bus, asking us in advance would have made our trip much more comfortable. Rooms are kind of old-fashioned, carpet has stains and so on. Do not expect a western breakfast.
The way to the nice onsen is not far, onsen experience is nice too. Staff and dinner were nice.
Enjoy private hot spring with you family,
The scenery on the road and old structure of hotel I liked. Family Hot Spring was best, also outside bath also huge and stunning.
