one of the best onsen ryokan ever
Super clean and quite with wonderful environment, if you looking for a onsen place to stay and relax out of the city, this is it.Staff is super helpful and greet you whenever they see you just like most of the up-class ryokan. I went there on snowing day and they even provide snow boots, slider,etc for you to have fun. The snow viewing from the in room open air bath is spectacular. The best thing from this hotel is dining, super nice room with large glass windows for snow viewing, high class speaker with wonderful music choice, and the best food I ever had out of all the onsen ryokon I stayed, the food itself is Michelin 2 star worth. My wife and me went to Japan many many times and usually stay with 2 high class onsen roykan each time, my wife love senjuan so much she just want to stay at this place next time we visit.

建物、温泉、大変良かった。 従業員の対応も素晴らしかった。 ただ一つ、大変残念だったのは食事でした。旅行の楽しみの半分は夕食。 ミシェランでも評価されているくらいなので、さぞや夕食はいいだろうと期待していました。 京都懐石のような料理らしいのですが、盛り付け、味は三流でした。 期待していたのが裏切られたようでがっかりです。 ここの料理長は本当に味音痴ではと感じるくらい不味かったです。 盛り付けも三流で。 温泉や建物は95点ですが、料理は40点でお金を返して貰いたいくらいです。本当に失望しました。 これがメインかどうか分かりませんが、薄っぺらく透き通るような牛肉が2枚と増量の意味か大振りのレタス、スーパーで買ってきたようなキノコ少々。 味?最低でした。
