We stayed here several years ago. We managed to book it only because we were connected on the phone with an English-speaking staff. During our stay, it was extremely helpful that one of the staff could communicate with us in English.
Service was excellent,. it is customary in Japan to call ahead to inform when one is arriving. Because we did this, we were collected on the road where the bus from Hachinohe dropped us. The segregated baths, the meals, and the room were excellent. Behind the inn was a large forest with beautiful beech trees and a lake. We walked here a couple of times.

This Inn is tucked away in the mountains in a secluded area and offers a nice escape.

This onsen is supposed to be one of the oldest in the region, hence my draw to it. I had a concierge from another hotel call ahead for availability as I could not find any english websites to reserve a room. This is a very japanese style Inn - it is old and rustic, but charming and well serviced. I was greeted by their staff and shown around the facilities (the bathrooms, onsen, dining area, common room, and then my room). The rooms don't have locks on them, which is traditional for this type of Inn, but I felt...
