Location is quite far from Omachi, and lack of public transport to reach the place. Bus runs every hours until 1615 or 1715. The onsen resort area is quiet in the night. There are restaurant and convenience store nearby, but because it rained in the night I don't have a chance to visit them. Room in spacious, and there's breakfast... More

This is a great hotel to stay at before or after you complete the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route. The hotel is set in tranquil surroundings and yet within two-minutes' walk of the Onsenkyo bus stop. Rooms are big and comfortable. Onsen has both indoor and outdoor pools, an outdoor cold tub and a sauna room. Souvenir shop carries a good... More

We stayed here the night before going over the alpine route, it's a great location for it. As others have mentioned, the bus for the alpine route has an Omachi Onsen stop which is between Shinano Omachi station and Ogizawa. The stop is just outside the hotel entrance. We arrived after the last bus has already gone so couldn't use... More

Stayed overnight after Tateyama Kurobe Alpine route. Hotel very close to Omachi bus station. Luggage already forwarded and put into room on our arrival. Our check-in time at 5:30pm was busy; maybe because every other local travellers also arrived by own transport same time. Receptionist spoke limited English. Needed to wait for another 10 minutes for a fluent English representative... More

The hotel is less than 5 min walk from the Omachi Onsenkyo bus-stop, easy to navigate and set upon natural forest and mountain scenery. I was suitably impressed that they had placed my luggage nearly in my room by the time I got there. Staff were very hospitable and kind. I stayed over a night after going on the Tateyama... More

We arrived at the hotel at sunset after completing the fabulous Alpine Route. Unlike other major "onsen" towns in Japan, Omachi is a small and quiet one, making it a perfect place to relax and rest. The exterior of the hotel is Western-styled, but the guest rooms are in traditional Japanese style, an interesting contrast indeed. We really enjoyed the... More

My husband and I happily discovered a vast room (uncommon in Japan) with refined Japanese furniture, decoration and amenities. We then thought we would rather have bedding ready, which was not the case. We went for diner, since accommodation goes with breakfast and diner. The diner buffet was a wonderful surprise: exquisite local food. We tried plenty of new food.... More
