Beautiful onset with views into the woods. Comfortable rooms with excellent service. Recommend breakfast and dinner at the ryokan as there is not much to eat at those hours in the town.

Stunning ryokan tucked away in the mountains, but still only a 10 minute walk from the main onsen town. Super friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful rocky outdoor onsen with sulphuric minerals. Clean and spacious tatami room, and delicious Japanese style breakfast set. Would definitely stay again!

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
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.
