Did you check the hotel's websites? I can't find any New Okabe's official web page in English. I guess it shows the volume of handling foreign tourists. So, I suggest you to prefer Kinugawa Grand Hotel. Besides, the Japanese review of Kinugawa Grande Hotel rated 4.4 and New Okabe is 3.8 with comments. I personally don't like to eat buffet dinner at Onsen ryokan/hotel; so definitely I would prefer Kinuga Grand Hotel. Both hotel names are quite well-known for Japanese travellers.

Thank you. I agree about the buffet. I like the Grand better but the Okabe had some association with JIFHA (whatever that is ) on japan.net. The Grand is almost double the price but I found a cheaper deal on one of the websites. Thanks again. I will go and book the Kinugawa Grand now.

Hi,

Used japantravelleronline and it was very good. The stay was fabulous, we just love it! We are at Yudanaka at another onsen place, very authentic but the standard of Kinugawa Grand is definitely 5 star level. The onsen here is much more authentic but the hotel itself is a different class but cost much more than Kinugawa Grand as it is the New Year. Go and stay there, you will have no regrets.

No place to store big luggage except maybe walk out of the station and there:s a place that says luggage storage. I didn]t check it out as the hotel came and pick up all our stuff. Will write more but gotto go and catch the train!
