The hotel is located amid of the forest (very natural). The main onsen bath is separated from the main buiding which is very beautiful. Borth dinner and breakfast are various and very delicious. The staffs are very friendly, but they couldn't speak English very well. Strongly recommended for the traveler who is looking for Japanese accomodation style.
