Perhaps like many tourists, we stopped here while traveling on the Shinkansen through northern Tohoku. We've been to a number of onsen hotels and this one has a bit more to add to the experience in part because of the extensive property, which includes a rose garden, hiking trail and some nice shops along the entrance to the property; three onsens and an evening show. Hanamaki is the hometown of the famous poet and author, Kenji Miyazawa, and his influence echoes in the architecture at the station and the shops, making this location even more family friendly.

The hotel is the smallest of the three connected hotels and that is probably a good thing as tour groups seem to be mostly at the other hotels. Interior walkways allow easy access to all three onsens. Service is courteous and attentive. The "Viking" buffet for both dinner and breakfast was plentiful. We saw many families with children at the meals. Rooms are very comfortable and traditional for an onsen hotel, and have baths for those unable to go to the onsen.

One of the highlights of the stay is an evening show that is free for guests. Local song and dance are performed providing a nice cultural experience.

There is a free shuttle bus to and from the station with 3 times in the afternoon and morning. You can make reservations on-line. While the Google English translation of the reservation page is not perfect, it is easy enough to understand. The shuttle buses have luggage storage so you don't need to worry about how to handle your luggage. The station is small and the directions on where to wait for the shuttle are easy to follow. (West Exit, bus stop 3).

Our room had and amazing view. Onsen between the three hotels was great, especially the outdoor. Though I felt the staff could have helped us with our luggage. Kamabuchi waterfall was within the hotel premise, about 7 mins walk. Breakfast and dinner was great, they had a variety to offer.

We had a great, Japanese-style room which they made up for use during dinner. There was a wonderful view, beautiful tatami mats and western bath room. A traditional Japanese dinner and breakfast came with the room. It was a buffet but the food was varied and all of it was exceptional. There was fish, pork, chicken and beef dishes, as well as many vegetarian options.

This hotel is the middle of 3 that together make up the Hanamaki onsen resort. The building are joined by indoor hallways and staying in one hotel allows access to the baths in all 3 buildings. The onsens were spectacular. Two had both indoor and outdoor pools and the third had multiple indoor pools. I will return here very soon.

Room tip: There are both western and Japanese style rooms available.

Can recommend this hotel which is quite large in splendid surrounding. The Onsen is stylish and also quite big. The hotel is part of 3 Hotel Complex which all got their individual Onsen. The staff was very helpful and giving advice when best to abstain from visiting the Onsen in view to large tourist groups spending time there.
