We travelled as part of a group on a gastronomic tour in Japan and occupied several rooms with single sex occupation.
Initial greeting was very friendly and your shoes are taken away on entry - you get a "luggage tag" for them which you need to keep safe!
Our rooms were for three people each with plenty of space, many tatami mats with room for futons laid down at dinner by the staff.
There are separate loos, washing area and a small private onsen which I found extremely hot.
The main onsen is traditionally single sex but there is only one pool in each area so not possible to experience a range of temperatures.
Food is a traditional Kaiseki meal, not the best but not the worst we have had and the staff work hard to please. Breakfast is also traditional Japanese so no catering for Western tastes.
Most guests are from Japan so generally arrive by car, we had a small fleet of texis from Izu Nagaoka station.
The onsen experience is a personal taste (not really to mine) but the property itself is large, beautifully laid out and very secluded.More
