What is most interesting in this hotel is you can take outside hot spring with man & woman together. For woman, you do not be naked...oh, you may, off course. There is hot spring inside and you can get a special 'YUKATA' (Kimono) for hot spring out side. I met 2 European women inside and explained how you wear and... More

There is not a lot of English spoken at the hotel but the staff make up for this in their willingness to please. We ( two couples) stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The evening dinner was excellent. A different meal each night. Breakfasts were reasonable ( buffet style - not great) but nice fresh fruit each day.... More

This ryokan was a wonderful experience, though like other similar ryokans staying with multiple individuals in a room is expensive. The view of our room was gorgeous, overlooking the crystal-clear water, where you can see little fish swimming around! Definitely feels like a pristine place to be, the outdoor onsens are wonderful and at night the sky is so clear... More

Yes I have been here before - and I will come again. It is so good. The rooms look out over the river and into the forest - it is so very peaceful. This is a wonderfully comfortable hotel with excellent staff. Of course the onsen and rotemburo are a real highlight of staying here - especially if you dabble... More

this small ryokan is a mix of new building and Japanese style ryokan, offers large and convenient rooms, excellent food with a great variety- so even if you're not crazy about Japanese food you will have plenty of choices. The hot springs, set on the river outside, are simply splendid. the views from the room are beautiful.

This place was so good I stayed there for two days on two occasions. The hotel staff are so very accommodating, friendly and unbelievable (to western standards) helpful. The rooms are very comfortable with wonderful aspect onto the river and the forest. The onsen is great - inside and outside. You can just let go of your naked inhibitions -... More

Kawayu is such a great area to stay especially if you plan to go to any Kumano shrines, and I'd recommend to go there in winter when sennin buro (outside public hot spring river!) is open. Midoriya is located near by and provide the great rooms and food.
