Spacious and cozy place. Onsen was perfect, all in public and private zone.
Too hard to find the place. No english sign at all. Narrow and slippery road to the hotel.
The ryokan had a rustic air and was beautiful to walk around. The staff were very helpful and welcoming and we were assigned English speaking staff during our stay. We were offered mochi and tea when we arrived and there were snacks in our room. Yukatas, pyjamas, snow shoes, socks and slippers were provided. The 2 public river side baths were beautiful, and the genders for them are switches during the evening. Aside from the usual male and female baths, there were also 3 private bath rooms, each with an indoor and outdoor bath across from the ryokan. Dinner was a grand affair with a multicourse meal. It was a very relaxing experience and we felt well taken care of.
The futon were filled with something hard and are different from normal futon. It was a bit difficult to get used to, but we still slept well. The food were well made but the flavours may not be to everyone's liking. The baths also were generally cooler than I had expected or wanted. It was also difficult to access by public transport with only a 2 hourly bus through the area.
We like the room position, you can see the river and there is a small terrace where you can set and see the snow.
Dinner and breakfast were plentiful and delicious. Room was spacious, extremely comfortable and serene. The onsen facilities were easy to access and very enjoyable. Service is friendly yet un-intrusive. The location in the Alps is beautiful. Would definitely go again.
The food was simply delicious and served in an amazing traditional setting. We were assigned to the same table for breakfast and dinner. At breakfast we also received a little lunch box which included an onigiri for each one of us. The room is bigger than shown in the pictures and very beautiful. Most of the staff spoke very good english and could help us even late in the evening. The onsen area is quite big. We only used the private ones which are just in front of the main building. We went for a bath before dinner and the next day in the morning before check-out at 11am. The operate them by a first-come first-serve basis and on unlimited time. There was always more than one private onsen available and once you picked one they included an indoor and outdoor bath. What we also liked is that the private onsen are available 24h. I recommend traveling by car as it is quite complicated to arrive and leave from the property. It would have been helpful to collect all the necessary information (dinner time, breakfast time, onsen opening hours, etc.) in an engish manual as the japanese one could not be translated by google translate (hand written) and some of the staff did not speak English.
