Our home for 2 nights, Hirayu No Mori, is conveniently located just across the bus terminal. This hot spring resort boasts of beautiful grounds with 3 bath facilities (2 segregated and 1 mixed gender) and a total of 16 pools altogether. The segregated bath had pools around a gorgeous Japanese garden. Our room, albeit a little small for 3 people, was surprisingly comfortable, although we had to put our luggage at the enclosed balcony to fit all 3 of us comfortably. Our room didn’t come with a bathroom but had a washbasin at the entrance. The shared toilet and bath just down the hall was clean. We had most of our meals there, and I was happy with what I had during our stay– Hida beef teppanyaki, a curry dish and a zaru soba. Breakfast was typical Japanese, which included Hoba Miso – a Hida specialty that I had come to love.
