5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2016

We were recommended by local friends to try this onsen hotel. There is a free shuttle pickup from the train station. The hotel is orderly and clean, however, language is limited to Japanese. We were "upgraded" to a western room with 2 real beds instead of tatami - we originally insisted on the "authentic" experience but the luckily a mandarin speaking young lady explained that this room is bigger and nicer and we gladly accepted.

The male and female onsen pools interchange daily so each sex can enjoy the view of the ocean. The dining facilities is located on couple of large halls - the food menu is usually seasonal and you would have to prebook your food when you made the room reservation.

Aka is a small town and think of it as a retreat and enjoy the onsen bath.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

1. Water was way too hot: about 42-43 centigrade in all and every hot bath. For some it may be fine, but for me it just too hot to enjoy.

2. Though baths are swapped between sexes during every night, men's bath has much less of a view during evenings. If you're a woman, you would enjoy a beautiful sunset over ocean. If you're a man, not so much.

3. Some more expensive "ocean view" rooms have more a view of other building's roof, than ocean, though you can see the ocean behind the roof. This is not exactly what we expected from an ocean view.

3. Food was otherwise good and tasty, so are bedding and service. There was a free wifi in the lobby.
