Beds were comfortable and the onsen baths were great. Best part was the delicious kaiseki meal served in a Japanese style dining room. I highly...

This hotel is located at the lake side. The room is Japanese style ta-ta-m and tatami bed but it's very modern, clean and comfortable. The hotel has Tsunagi Onsen, which is not that good but has very good Japanese food. There isn't much night life, but it is quite and relaxing. Of course, the services and staff are superb.

(In that regard, it was better...

We enjoyed very quiet relaxing spas at the hotel. The room and spas were very clean, and dinner was good. Breakfast buffet was an average, and the hotel is in the middle of no where. If you are looking for a very relaxing weekend away from cities, it's perfect. If you would like to do lots of sightseeing, there is...
