Family-oriented onsen with wonderful service

My gf and I spent the night and had a great time. The staff was super friendly and helpful - the manager even came down to the train station (unasked) with something we'd forgotten! We were there in sakura season, which was beautiful - it's also apparently beautiful in maple season. Baths were nice and we also booked the private bath (not onsen) for an extra ¥2000 which was lovely. It's a little outside of the main town, but there's a shuttle that runs in the evening and they gave us a ride to the train when we left - probably would have picked us up if we'd called when we arrived. Overall, a lovely older onsen ryokan with lots of young families staying there. (They have a playroom, arcade, etc.)

4/5 Good

The hotel was located up on the top of the hill, and takes about 15 minutes to walk to town.They have golden hot spring which we liked but we did not get a chance to enjoy as it was only gender specific and nude only. You could rent the private room, but it's just a hot tub, it's not hot springs water. The staff were nice and they do speak English which was quite helpful. They served a breakfast buffet right before we checked out, food was decent. Our room had a good view, could have imagine how nice it would be if the cherry blossom had opened up. Bathroom was big and stone tub was good for a nice hot bath. I was looking for more for the price we paid for, but overall, we had a decent stay.

Amazing, worth every penny. Definitely ask for the free bus to get there though as the walk from the train station is all uphill
