We drove and stayed in the top floor of the South Wing. Although the onsens and food were all in the North and West Wings, access still very convenient. The onsens were great with choices of hot, cold and outdoor. The three onsens are opened in-turns from 5am to 1am, so no excuse not to pay a visit. Our room... More
