I had an incredible stay here - it's the best experience I had in Japan. After being in Tokyo it was a magical break to go up to this onsen, the staff are adorable and really welcoming. It's really fun to get given an kimono to wear and have a traditional ryokan room to stay in. The staff explain nicely... More

This place is great. The rooms are very traditional and it's the only place for miles. The hot springs are relaxing and huge. The locals are very welcoming and happy to practice their English. The only down side is the 4 caged bears there. I would highly recommend going down for a soak at 3am with no one else there... More

This onsen is absolutely beautiful and worth the drive or travel out of the way. This was my first trip in Japan and it was my male friend and I's last day. I was worried when I scheduled the room that we would not be able to get there, know the customs, etc. However, I emailed the onsen and told... More

The room and hotel was nice, I traveled with my brother and everything was ok. Just one thing, toilets in our bedroom are not very nice smelling. Dinner is so well served and so copious! It's very traditional and people nice. Amazing way to relax, wifi and tv in the room in case you get bored. Water is REALLY hot,... More

This Ryokan is just amazing. The location, the staff, and the onsen are just perfect. I read some reviews of people moaning about the old wooden building. Well that's the whole part of the experience. This is a 90 year old building in some parts, so of course its not like a concrete and glass modern hotel. I wouldn't want... More

Stayed here 2 nights. What an experience. The baths and setting is amazing. The modesty frocks were very helpful. The food was sensational and the lady serving us was an absolute delight. The only thing that let this place down was the cleanliness of the rooms. The dust was visible on the walls and the furniture was very shabby. Such... More

This was one of, if not the highlight of our trip to Japan. Traveling from Tokyo to Jomo-Kogen by bullet train, then by courtesy bus to Takaragawa was through pretty countryside with the cherry blossom in full bloom, eventually ending up in the mountains at Takaragawa. The scenery here and the landscaping around the Onsen and Ryokan were absolutely spectacular... More

For us it was very unique experience. We came two couples and we loved it. The stuff gave us an excellent service. The rooms were very clean and the oncen was amazing, especially at night. Brakefast was very simple but dinner was one of the best food I've ever eaten

There are three different mixed onsens to enjoy, plus a women's only. Beautiful scenery, with a relaxing atmosphere. I am a Canadian living in Japan for four years. This is one of the nicest outdoor saunas we have been to. The natural hot springs are a treasure to enjoy. The accommodations were typically Japanese, which I like, but sleeping on... More
