There are other onsen hotels nearby that have restaurants. Within walking distance we did see a few (including a dumpling restaurant) and also a snack shop at a gas station.

Hi. I think Breakfast starts at 6, though don't quote me on it! We booked via booking com I think. I'm sure you can ask staff there or email them (google translate if need be). It's a beautiful place!
