5 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

I arranged a trip here with 13 coworkers and had an excellent time. Food was great, service was excellent and very accommodating. I speak Japanese so I'm not sure how their English is in general, but a few of the employees had some level of it, and one person's English was very good, if that's relevant to you. The scenery around here is beautiful. At no additional charge to us, the kitchen staff kindly presented us with a special menu item for each dinner that was not offered as part of the general buffet - we appreciated this kind touch
The onsen is nice - whether you have to pay for it may depend on what plan you select when booking. It's open 5am-midnight. Our stay was in July and it was light out by 5am, so I enjoyed a 5am onsen visit or two.
This is a quiet resort town, so if you're looking for a busy place with tons to do, don't go here. But if you want a relaxing weekend for a good price, look no further.

We had a vague idea what to expect when making a reservation with this hotel, but never thought it would turn out this good.
Sunshine Kinugawa is a fairly big hotel, about 15 min walk from Kinugawa-onsen station. Checking-in was quick and smooth, English was spoken here, staff were courteous and helpful.
We were pleasantly surprised to be allocated a Japanese Tatami room on a higher floor, spacious, clean with a million dollar view of Kinugawa river, mountains and the beautiful Kido Tateiwa suspension bridge.
We checked- in early, decided to try the Tsuganoki's onsens next door, which was part of our package. The onsens are gender segregated, small but pleasant. There was no one else at that hour, we enjoyed the facilities to ourselves.
Dinner and breakfast were both buffet, great variety of foods, mainly Japanese. We enjoyed the dinner most, especially the crab and the sashimi.
This hotel has semi-rotenburo kashikiri for those wanting to have private bath. We...
