Hotel in the middle of Shimanto river valley. Very nice staff, could organize transport from and to train station. In the evening they offer guided (only in Japanese) night star viewing by telescope, remember to reserve it at reception. We had Japanese style room which was really nice with beautiful view on the river. Hotel offer indoor nice onsen, but with view to mountains and Shimanto river. In village limited dining option, not open each day.

Situated above the Shimanto River, this western style hotel offers sweeping valley views from every room. Even the onsens have views! There’s a large deck outside the lounge area which would be great for happy hour, but the only seats available are concrete stools - no good for relaxing. The rooms are a decent size. Bathroom is small but has everything. The onsen is well kitted out but there was algae in the grout of the onsen pool on the ladies side. Needs cleaning for sure! Dinner and breakfast were excellent, with traditional foods nicely prepared and served with care and attention.

I recommend this hotel if you are looking for a place with a fantastic view of the Shimanto River and offering a nice course meal, onsen baths, friendly staff, and an onsite planetarium, this is the place to stay. The overall design of the hotel is very modern with all necessary ammenities. If you have a chance, I would recommend to rent a bicycle and take a nice ride along the Shimanto River, for an amazing experience. Don't forget to pack your camera or GoPro.

I stayed at this property during a tour around the Shimanto region. The design of the property was very modern and with large picture windows in the dining area, enjoying the local scenery was a pleasure. The evening meal was delicious and hard to fault. The management had placed fresh flowers in the room, which was a nice touch and the rooms were clean. A few small details like lace table covers and floral quilted bed covers let the room down, the biggest disappointment for the rate charged for the room was the torn and worn furniture and having carpet on the floor in the room toilet. Overall this is an excellent Hotel, which I highly recommend and that I would stay at again. The management showed signs of wanting to get things right so I expect the little things will change. The food here was excellent and it is across the road from the farmers market.

Perched on the hill overlooking the rive this is a contemporary style hotel that looks quite western. However beds are Japanese style futons on Takashimi mats. Staff was very friendly greeting us and provided a proper indoor bike storage in the main reception area. The rooms are lovely and huge by Japanese standards and overlook the river valley, with a small outside balcony. There is also washing machine dryer available near reception and an in-house Onsen. Whilst seemingly no-where near a convenience store there are vending machines including one dispensing beer hidden on the second floor. Unfortunately breakfast was very Japanese and whilst presented very nicely I'm afraid I didn't appreciate the selection, including having to grill your own fish (bait size) on your personal griller. A nice hotel apart from the fact I was suffering from Japanese breakfast overload by this stage of our trip
