We loved every part of this experience. We visited in late October and the foliage colors were astounding. I had never seen anything like it. Mind you that I come from a country that barely has trees; Iceland. You could see endless dimensions of yellow, red and green through the hills. Very beautiful and serene area. The hotel is old...

This is our first time trying a mixed onsen and it was an eye opener. Have to admit that my comfort zone has expanded and it feels good after taking a bath when you realized it's no big deal. Hotel is old and cold in the hallways but warm in our room. Nice view of the river. Very scenic around... More

This is the place to go for some serious R&R. Our room was spacious and traditional, clean and well-maintained, with a beautiful view. The sound of the river rushing past your window is shooting and therapeutic. The onsen was very clean and incredibly beautiful! What an amazing experience to relax in an open-air bath while it is snowing, surrounded by... More

The location of the hotel is located 30 minutes from JR station. There is a shuttle bus service from the hotel but you have to make a reservation in advance. Overall of the hotel is very nice. The open-air onsen is very exotic view. But it might be crowded during the evening time. Staffs can speak English. Dinner set provided... More

The area is beautiful. The springs are nice and the Ryokan is historical looking. The walls were cracking in my room and looked like it needed repair, The food was good for traditional Japanese food. I went here for the mixed springs so I could go with my wife, I didn't like that all the men had to be naked... More

This place was a highlight of our trip to Japan, our room was traditional, the river water rushed along the wall of our window and we slept to the sound of the water and awoke to the stunning views all around. A short walk over the bridge to one of the 3 onsens (not including the separate ladies onsen) they... More

I was at Tsukuba, rented a car and drove 3 hours with my wife to this place. It is in the mountains so do drive carefully. The GPS in the car works well. The one night stay included a dinner and a breakfast. The dinner is traditional Japanese and it is very good. You get a choice with the breakfast,... More

I booked through Japanican website. They were excellent. Reservation process was simple, no prepayment. After I've done the reservation I emailed the ryokan direct to inform that I do not eat pork and to inquire about the room, etc. I also requested for a hotel pick-up from Jomokogen Train Station, which is about 40 minutes away. Only one pick-up time... More

We stayed here in August 2015. Other reviewers have noted that this Ryokan was tired and in need of renovations which I agree with, but that all added to the old world charm of the place. "It is what it is". Our traditional room overlooked the river with the sound of fast flowing water which gave you a sense of... More

I'll get the bad out of the way first - the inn itself seemed dated and lacked the super-cleanliness that I'd come to expect throughout Japan. The food was OK. There is a captive bear on the premises. The Amazing. The onsen/valley is beautiful. Perhaps we were extremely lucky, but we got to enjoy our onsen experience in the middle... More
