From the delightful suite to the zen indoor hot spring spa- my husband and I could not have been more impressed. But wait- yes it can be topped- by the multi-course traditional Japanese dinner AND buffet breakfast. If you want a unique authentic cultural experience, this is the place!

We booked the ryokan as a family experience. It was lovely, clean. The onsen was beautiful with an outdoor setting as well. Food was pretty scarce in the evening but we were off-season. There was a very good breakfast buffet. A quaint little town.

Did the trick. Room was clean. Service was friendly. Mostly business class hotel but if vacationing try surrounding Japanese inns for more authentic experience. But if western-type hotel desired, this is a good choice for location. A little pricey relative to offerings but likely due to time of year.

I stayed here for a night with my family. The hotel is very close to the train station. The room was clean and spacious. The onsen was good. The dinner and breakfast was good.

Still, for dinner, if you weren't that crazy about crab, don't order a crab meal plan. I got 1 whole steamed crab, one each of crab sashimi, tempura, nabe, grilled, and chawanmushi...after that I got porridge in the same pot as crab nabe. It's literally over dose of crab.

My JP wife and I stayed here 4/17-4/18, before the tourist season was in full swing. There were a lot of workers on the south hilltop "View Land" mini-amusement park, busily preparing for visitors. It was nice not to have to fight the crowds, and we had free reign over the area.
Our very spacious room had two western beds overlooking the Asokai (Aso Sea). The main room had full tatami and provided plenty of futons in the futon closet. I took advantage of that to sleep on rather than the western-style bed. As usual in Japan, the room included a hot water pot with tea and coffee, TV, and a refrigerator. They provided a free liter of water in the fridge. The bathroom had toothbrushes, comb/brush, and soaps/hair tonics, you won't find in the west.
The hotel onsen were nice. They have two main bath areas, segregated by sex. They switch sides daily (after a midnight cleaning) so you can enjoy both. Each side features 3-4 pools with different temps and properties, as well as two saunas on each side.
The room inlcuded a custom spectacular Japanese ryokan dinner with a lot of small local fish dishes, and a buffet (viking) breakfast with endless selections.
As usual in Japan, the hotel staffers were kind and courteous.
If I have one single irritant, it was the bicycle rental fee the hotel charges. They charge the exact same as all the other local shops (400 yen/2 hrs), but you would think they'd offer the bikes gratis for their guests or at least discounted. Anyway, having the bikes was a great way to travel across the "Bridge to Heaven" sand bar and visit the north hill, and 2000 year old Kono Jinja (shrine). This shrine is known as the "power shrine".
