“Delightful--worth going out of the way!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights and loved it. Bullet train from Tokyo to Niigata, a local train and then 1 more single-car train ride and you`re almost there. The Inn will pick you up from town. The water and rotenburo in particular are great; next to the warm soaking area is a very cool temperature soak--invigorating is 1 word that comes to mind. The food is fresh and healthy, available in different amounts, depending what package you purchase. Advisable to have a Japanese language speaker in your party, to keep things simpler. Local, very simple but friendly, attractions include a small museum recreating the governor`s living quarters and legal court; a do-it-yourself pottery shop (we had a ball), gardens/restaurant, and a public foot-soaking area to experience their famous waters. The Inn will shuttle you, or a local taxi is fair priced. You may not want to leave the on-sen inn, though.

Room Tip: All rooms have a garden view. There`s a suite on top floor. Good privacy abounds here.
