The greeting staff at the entrance is very nice and drove us to the actual location. But the greeting staff in the other part did not bother to help us with our luggage which is still understandable, yet the staff did not seem to bother to lead us to the room and only provided us a map and we had to look for our way in this huge onsen site for more than 20 minutes and got lost. The outdoor onsen was quite atmospheric but due to the weather and the snow we did not experience a second time to have a fair review, please do not go the indoor ones though. Even convenience store provided much better options of food with that price range. Room was fair and the water boiler welcomed us with unknown substances which we had to ask the very nice restaurant staff for extra bottles of water. The hotel is very commercial and packed with foreign tourists though it left me wondering why proportionally very few Japanese locals seem to appreciate this 'traditional ryokan'.

Great Onsen!

What a great Onsen! Excellent for a winter stay. The cold air combined with the hot water made for a fantastic experience. Clean, very friendly, beautiful location. The Japanese dinner was delicious. As for the breakfast, the guest have the choice between a western and a Japanese breakfast. Make sure to take the Japanese breakfast, it was delicious!
