      Rooms and facilities are a bit dated but staffs were friendly and foreigner friendly. In a quiet area a short walk from the main street where most of the other ryokans and some restaurants and shops are located. Additional charges for the private onsen so we did not use it. The public onsen has an indoor and outdoor section for both the male and female side and is only open from 7am-9.30am and from 3pm to 9.30pm. We feel it’s too short especially at night. Perhaps the night opening could be extended. We also found a lot of white floating particles in the water. They looked like something from the source and not dirts but wasn’t pleasant to see. Management should really looked into this.

      Excellent service from the hotel. Very friendly and patient staff, always ready to help out despite the language barrier. The room we stayed was very clean and comfy. Loved the onsen. The hotel provides transfer to and from the bus stop as well.

      What’s not to like.

      We had a wonderful stay here. The family run Ryokan always went the extra mile and helped us plan our itinerary. The location, rooms, service and food were excellent. We were sad that we were unable to stay here for the 2 nights.
