However, they put a lot more effort at public area. Beautiful decor all around. Very nice public spa area. Can pay extra 1000 yen per person to enjoy the...

a very nice onsen hotel. We had a nice banquet kaiseki dinner; efficient serving staff and with our Japanese speaking guide, got to understand the different dishes served. The onsen furo (bath) was nice; private rooms at $15 per person were available for the shy or romantic ones. WI-FI in rooms. This area is known for its tea.

The layout of the hotel is also impressive,...
