The hotel was about 20mins by foot from the Utoro Onsen Bus Terminal, so it was slightly inconvenient with our luggages. That said, the owner of the inn was really friendly and welcoming, which more than made up for the inconvenience. She even gave us 2 bicycles to use for free during our stay (compliments for guests who did not travel by car) and drove us to the Bus Terminal several hours after the check-out time. Facilities-wise, the pantry/kitchen was very cosy and comfortable; the balcony a great place to relax and view the surrounding scenery, the room clean, thoughtfully decorated and well-equipped (hairdryer, kettle etc). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here (and also playing with the adorable dog!).
