Beautiful Ryokan
We loved this ryokan. It was beautiful, well-located, and had its own onsen. Also there’s excellent hiking nearby. Perfect!

This Ryokan is not fancy or modern but was perfect for what we needed. We wanted a traditional experience and a few days away from the sounds of Tokyo. Kamiobo is located in the neighbourhood of Aroma Onsen, a quiet village just outside of Kobe. Kamiobo felt like we were staying at a B&B. It was comfortable, unique and traditional. We used the Onsen every morning and night and they had no issues with our tattoos! Each morning we drank our tea in our sunroom which was a nice way to start the day. Sleeping on the floor was quite the experience but this stay will definitely help define our trip to Japan. Only negative is that Aroma Onsen is a bit of a sleepy town, restaurants close early and there are limited food and drink options after 8pm.

Pleasant stay.
Pleasant stay at a traditional Onsen. The baths were very relaxing and room was clean. Only issue was lack of any meal service.

Not what I expected
For the price I expected there to be some food. I was surprised to find there was none and was disappointed with Expedia's description. Most of the overnight guests eat in their hotels and ryokans, so finding a meal is difficult. The bath water was excellent--but that is shared by all the lodges. The bathroom, on the other hand, down cold concrete steps, was simply a bare, tiled room with two tubs. The price is probably common to the area since it is so famous, but compared to all the other places I've stayed at in Japan, I did not think the value was there.

Convenient, quiet and cheap Ryokan.
Room and staff were great. Probably not the best onsen experience (water was good - the place itself, with the spa, a bit gloomy), but still nice and relaxing hotel.
