We took the bus from the main station and we ended up having to walk up such windy stairs with our luggage, it was like climbing a mountain with extra weight at a 50 degree angle! Both my boyfriend and I are physically fit, I run about 5x a week at about 5 miles each time, but it was absolutely dreadful going up the stairs! If you do decide to stay here, take the train, it's only one flight of stairs up (not 4 sets of steep stairs). But other than that, if you decide to check out the botanical gardens next door, you can also hitch a free ride from the bus there to a train station. The hotel itself was impeccably clean. We stayed in a room with its own onsen which I loved. The vending machine dispenses beer and a couple other alcoholic drinks. So we bought a couple and laid out in the onsen before dinner and before bedtime. The tatami mats are very comfortable and the room itself is very spacious. The area itself is very charming if you're looking for something with a rustic appeal, but there are no shops closeby and I would definitely recommend getting the meal included with the stay. The food was incredible and service was also nice. Don't be late! They'll call you within 5 minutes of your designated show-up time to check up on you to see if you're still going to arrive.
