A ryokan located out of this world ... in the mountains of Shirahone Onsen.
The natural outdoor Onsen was magical ... soaking in the white coloured water was therapeutic.
The environment was surrounded with fresh greenery, flowing river and mountain gorge. Indeed a refreshing experience staying in the mountains.
The service from the ryokan was great. The staff were on standby at the entrance to greet us when the shuttle bus which ferried us arrived.
The staff was welcoming. The check in was brisk. Our room located next to the river had the perpetual sounds of flowing water ... indeed music to the ears... absolutely relaxing even at night!
