Our stay was in the beginning of last May, which normally is in the middle of spring (in Japan). Therefore our original plan during the stay was to enjoy trekking in the foothills of Mt. Myoko. However, what we found out right after the arrival was a lot of snow on the foothill ground. Oh! No place to enjoy trekking.
However, once we had a cup of coffee in the terrace café, our disappointments faded away because of spectacular views from the hotel overlooking hills, forests, lake and village.
As a hotel with its proud history, you will feel, once you check in, a certain dignity in the lobby, library of the main building. On the contrary, its newly built annex creates trendy atmosphere, particularly in its lobby deck. Oh, we must not forget to inform that the rooms in the original building were all refurbished to comfortable standard.
Its Onsen, hot spring, is in the annex, and quality of the ever-flowing spring water seemed extremely good for skin.
Hotel staffs were friendly and over all services were on a high standard but for two minor claims during our breakfast. Served strawberries ripened too much to eat and our request for extra milk (for coffee) was totally forgotten. We would then rather recommend you to dine at the mentioned terrace café where you can also enjoy excellent bread and sweets.
As a whole, however, it is a recommendable resort, particularly if you want to enjoy Japanese mountain-girt national park view, and you will be able to have totally different experiences in summer/spring and winter.
