At first glance, you will feel lost in the middle of nowhere. However, once you step inside the Shimobe Hotel, you will be greeted by wonderful staff and surprisingly large (compared to the city) sized rooms. The hotel offers free wi-fi, as well as gift shops to stock up on traditional items. They even offer table tennis (reserve at front desk) and nightly Japanese Drum Performance (by local staff), as well as Rice Pounding experience by the guests.
The food is amazing and offer a wide variety of foods to appeal to both locals and foreign guests. Lastly, the onsen baths are amazing. The pictures are wonderful but you must visit in person. It is a great getaway for family, friends, and couples. If you just want to relax and enjoy peace and quiet, this is the place to go. Recommend spending 2-3 nights if possible.More
