It was the small things that made a difference. Upon checking in I was directed to where the onsens were. I was taken up to my room and the on desk brochure and key to the town onsens were explained. Ladies in kimonos were there to assist with the check out the next morning. When I was checking out they asked if I was going to he monkey park and gave me an immediate lift and offered to pick me up when I wanted. Upon arriving back at the hotel by walking (my choice) they offered me a lift to the train station, once again immediate lift when offer accepted. Couldn't fault the place.
