This is a comfortable place to stay if you are looking for a no frills hotel. It is run by an elderly couple and his family, I think. The elderly man was very kind and accommodating. We din realize that the hotel accepts cash payment only and he allowed us to pay the next day after we managed to go...

Pension is a bit outdated. All very basic and the place is remote from anything. One restaurant is close by but that's all. There is a pick-up service from the station, so that's nice. Minimal English is spoken. Conclusion without your own transport it's not an ideal place.

Heck, even the hot water dispenser is broken when the outside temperature is minus 4c!

Staff was...

Breakfast is delicious. It wasn't easy to find initially (even with GPS). But I love the onsen! Perfect after a cold day up snowy Mt Aso! And it can be...

We had hired a car so drove here. It was a little difficult to find but definitely worth it. The pension is family run and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are western style and en-suite. The food is home cooked, western style and excellent. We enjoyed both indoor and outdoor onsen - particularly as the weather...
