Rooms are typical Japanese styled, very comfortable and clean, with a western toilet.
My room faces the front and has a very good view of the distant rice fields across the river.
Hot springs- the indoor one is very hot, while the outdoor one is just right. Since i'm here in the middle of Summer, I stayed at the outdoor one most of the time. Although temperature is in the upper 20s in the daytime, it drops to around 20 at night, making the hot spring a good relaxing bath.
And the food- the shop is famous for a kind of trout, which is prepared either barbequed or as a sushi. A bit worried about having fresh...
