We stayed at Owashi Lodge for 10 nights during December. The staff were always very helpful and friendly. The beds were great and the rooms big for japan standards. We had a private 3 person room. All rooms have there own heaters which were fairly easy to operate though I think some English instructions in the room would be helpful.
Loved the kitchen facilities and washing machines.
All in all a great stay.
Only criticism was that the room walls/carpets looked dated.
Great value though.
