The hotel's setting along the river is quite lovely, but since the onsen is screened with a bamboo fence for privacy, some of the charm in lost. The hotel provides both Japanese style rooms with tatamis or Western beds. Dinner and breakfast buffets were nice, but not outstanding.

This place is right next to the Tateiwa Suspension Bridge and has wonderful views of the mountains in the public onsen. Granted, there's not much else going on around Kinugawaonsen, but it's great for an overnight stay. We had problems finding vegetarian food, and the hotel only had a dinner buffet. The staff gave it to us for a discounted... More
