We came to the Nyuto onsen (hot springs) area for the natural beauty of the mountains and an experience in a traditional hot springs ryokan. Our family of three loved it and I highly recommend Taeno-Yu for anyone looking for that combination. My son, 21, speaks Japanese but you should be aware that none of the staff speaks English aside... More

Taenoyu is located near the end of an isolated road, beside a river. The rooms are typical for a ryokan, reasonably well-maintained and of decent size. There are six onsen baths of varying temperatures, and the mixed gender baths are truly remarkable. The service was warm, cheerful, helpful, and attentive, although not particularly English-fluent. The meals were great. There is... More

We made a day visit as the ryokan was fully booked. Reception was excellent. Having stayed the night before in no-frills Tsurunoyu, the facilities here made our day; we had a decent shower here! The mixed rotenburo has a great view of the waterfall but the water quality was so-so, not as good as the milky white sulphur onsen in... More

I think the burden of dealing with day visitors shows - this is not a place you would go for peaceful relaxation. Overall the service was just ok, meals were very nice & served with efficiency but I thought the staff lacked the warm & welcoming professionalism that you get in most Japanese inns. Reception were very disorganised upon our... More

There are many different types of hot springs available in the lodge plus at the neighboring area. The rooms are clean and neatly decorated. Foods are fresh and local. Local Sake is also served upon our request. The staff is very friendly. This place is especially beautiful to visit during the winter when you can enjoy hot springs by watching... More

The onsen is modern and clean. It has an indoor and outdoor bath; one for each sex. Well I think females got more outdoor baths and the male outdoor bath is actually a mixed one. The outdoor bath faces the river and it was fashioned like an infinity pool. I like the good quality shower products and toner. They also... More
