4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2016 via mobile

Situated along the historic Kumamo Kodo pilgrimage route, the Watarase Onsen complex comprises 3 hotels catering to different budgets. Sasayuri is targeted at the high end, with very large rooms, good service, great meals, and access to one of the largest open air hot spring baths (rotenburo) in Japan. They will pick up and drop off at Shirahama station for free if you make advance arrangements, which makes it easy to access this hotel, which is nestled in the mountains.
This hotel also offers free access to family (private) baths, as well as free use of massage chairs in the lobby.
A wonderful mountain retreat that is more accessible than you think.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2014

The hotel is quite secluded so you will need a car to go there. From my limited Japanese knowledge, they seem to have one pick up and drop off time to train station (might be Hongu). The staff did not speak lots of English so do download a Japanese English translation app before you go, I think that would be useful. There is no free wifi there so google translate won't work.

The room was very tidy, staff were friendly and the food was amazing. The public bath was very nice with all the nice lotions, shampoo and shower gel etc. The onsen was perfect, if you go at night time, you can see the star and moon. There were 4 private onsen bath available but you do have to get there early! We went at 6:30am in the morning and it was the most peaceful place on earth.
