“Very Japanese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

This is a high class and costly spa hotel for Japanese - i.e. not really geared for foreign tourists. But as non-Japanese, we really enjoyed our stay. The outdoor bath was a big feature - sitting in hot bath looking at beautiful mountains is a treat - trying not to think of climbing those mountains the next day! Very comfortable room in which we enjoyed chairs! Wonderful meals that just kept coming. Also we a had a great packed lunch for the next day's walk. There was very little English spoken or written around the hotel, but staff were helpful and friendly and we had no trouble with anything. Overall a good experience and for us, the highlights were spa and food!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2011

With 14 friends, making the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, we passed an overnight in this fantastic hotel in the middle of nature to rest after a tired walking trip in the mountains around.

All was fantastic: dinner, breakfast, karaoke, rooms, open air onsen and the kind and helpfull atention of the only person english speaking at the hotel, Zia. She even went with us to start our next morning trip.

The rest of the staff were very kind,too, as all japanese people we found on the way.

It couldn't be better, only if we would have Internet conection in the room.
