      Lovely onsen hotel in an onsen town”

      Loved the entire experience. We did the breakfast and dinner option. The staff were lovely even picked us up and dropped us off at the train station and on the morning we went to the snow monkeys we were lucky to get a lift to the snow monkeys gate!! Bonus!! Lots of snow monkeys. A number with their babies. The Japanese dinners were amazing - many smaller plates. I preferred the western breakfast to the Japanese breakfast but glad we tried one of each!! All very lovely. Slept on the on the tatami floor on futons. That was an experience. The hotel has many of its own onsens both inside and out. I much preferred the onsens in our hotel as many of the towns 9 local ones were way too hot for me!

      The staff was wonderful. The onsen experience was amazing. My skin still feels great two days later. Love the traditional Japanese style experience. Ie. Wearing the fukata, to the wooden sandals, sleeping on the tatami mats.

      Great first ryoken experience. ”

      Staff was great and helpful. Service exceeded my expectations. For someone who has never been ryoken this was great and the view of the street below was entertaining.
