This is a large ryokan, although the lay out makes it seem and feel more intimate. Check in was professional and friendly as was our orientation with a cup of green tea made by staff in our room. We had the Japanese style room. The room was beautifully traditional and minimalist with a beautiful tokonoma, but also included a TV, fridge and excellent amenities. Of course yukatas and "happi coats" (a short coat over the yukata) in different sizes and sandals were also provided. The room even included a couple of beautiful origami birds. During our dinner our beds of comfortable futons were laid on the tatami mat floors. All in all very comfortable. The onsen was wonderfully relaxing after a day of touring with three different temperatures available; equally great was going into the onsen bath as a way of energizing oneself early in the morning. This ryokan had extended hours. As novices we were thankful that it wasn't busy. But you soon get the hang of the various steps in an onsen bath - especially making sure your tenugui or small towel never touches the water. All in all this ryokan was an excellent and enjoyable introduction to another aspect of Japanese life.

Yunokuni Tensyo was a fairly large onsen hotels when compared to others in the area. There was a good variety of indoor and outdoor onsens. It would be better if the indoor and outdoor onsens were located on the same floor. The dinner was very good and the staff did not charge us corkage fees for bringing our own wines there to enjoy. We bought some almond tofu snack from the shop of the hotel and it turned out to be very good when chilled.

We booked a room on top floor with private open air onsen. Room is spacious and with nice view. Meal is good with so much food to eat in one set. Service is nice too. The hotel itself has some activities for guests if you arrived early, we went there at about 5pm while most activity ended at about 6pm. We just tried the making of onsen eggs which is free of charge.

We spent 3 nights for half board in Deluxe Suite open air bath room. The room is very spacious and excellent view. The onsen is big, clean but a little bid crowded. The food is excellent especially dinner Kaiseki set. I do really recommend especially the room type we stay.

There are a few onsen are in the Kaga onsen region, and choosing which area to stay is not easy in the first place. After staying at Tensyo I did not regret choosing it. Located near the entrance from the main road, the hotel has a relatively big parking area across the street. It is a traditional style big onsen hotel. Since the hotel has several wings, it stretches a long way from the entrance. Check in was smooth. The hotel provides free admission tickets to the nearby yunokuni no mori village for two which is nice. Originally I planned to go to another attraction of kutaniyaki but finally decided to give this yunokuni no mori a try. This attraction is about 15 minutes drive away and worth a visit. Our room is located at the far end of the hotel, passing through the souvenir shop, function room, onsens, late night restaurants, etc. I reserved a very spacious Japanese style suite, which has a sofa and a small family room extension. The room also has 2 toilets which is rare. Lots of activities going on in the hotel during the stay. There is free pudding available, free onsen eggs which guests can put in a netted bag and put into the onsen pool at the hotel front. After some 40 minutes the eggs are ready to eat. I had the crab meal that evening with every course contains crab. Excellent for crab lovers. Good food quality and good service. The hotel has 3 different onsens and they are excellent, especially the outdoor one. You have to schedule your time so that you can enjoy all three onsens if you only have one day. About 10 minutes from the main onsen through an enjoyable walk. Plenty of restaurants and shops on the way.
