We stayed for 1 nite in July in 2 rooms on 2nd floor, main building. Everything in this Ryokan impressed me. Starting from the rest area, our room with a balcony, the onsen (either indoor, outdoor, private & shared onsen), the 11 course dinner. During our short stay (1500-1000), i made 3 visits to different onsen, and it never bored... More

Atmosphere: the resort's building is surrounded by picturesque landscaping that seems to leaped out from a Japanese Garden picture book. Pristine and serene, with moss covering everything from paving stone to roof. All these tiny plants and trees make the resort cool even during a hot day. Little stream and waterfalls flowing around you. The sound of summer cicadas and... More

I come here at least once a year, as often as possible. Would recommend it most strongly to anyone. Lovely family run establishment, full of peace, culture and delicious dining. Beautiful and perfect. Can't say enough how much I love this place.

We stayed here as a couple for 3 nights at the beginning of May. This was only a few weeks after the major earthquakes. The hotel's communication throughout was excellent even though the local area was slightly disrupted. What made the visit extra special was the effort they went to help me celebrate my birthday and in particular our waitress... More

This traditional older style ryokan is like a "resort". A reception area, dining rooms, library with separate bungalows set in Japanese gardens. Our room has its own onsen with a window over a busy stream. Our room comprises two large rooms with a surrounding enclosed balcony. Rice paper sliding walls with dark wood panels. The futon beds are laid out... More

Driving with GPS to there is ok. The room is tradtional style, good and we selected the type with in room osen. It could see a creek next to that osen. I enjoy to hear the water sound and smell the fresh air.

The setting of the Ryokan is very nice with a feeling of being deep in the woods. Sanga is located a short drive (4 mins) from the main town of Kurokowa Onsen, making it feel even more remote. The room we had was excellent - lots of space, good heating and a lovely private Onsen and shower area. We didn't... More

I stayed here for just one night with my wife. She'd never been to Japan before and I'd lived there for a few years previously. It was perfect. Fantastic service, good food and beautiful baths. The town itself is beautiful and we enjoyed wandering around that before check in. Once checked in - we didn't leave and bath hopped through... More
