We decided to travel to Shirahama for a might while staying in Osaka. We quickly booked a room from the train, without looking too much at location / competitive rates / hotel facilities.

We booked through another website for two adults, and after completing the transaction, was asked to pay twice as much. We are still unsure of the final charge, as we weren't able to cancel, and the english was the worst yet.

We got a traditional Japanese room with two futons. Super clean room, but not the best sleep. We have lightweight camping mats that offer more comfort, and those are the light uncomfortable ones.

The balcony had a foot bath, and sit in tub. So, that means a pine box, that has hot mineral water, perpetually flowing through it. Never having seen this before, was not accustomed to the amount of scale and mineral build up. Bit creepy.

The basement had a large onsen, and shower area. The owner took us down, and instructed us to use one of the two rooms for ourselves, and lock the door while in there for privacy. That was fun / funny experience. The showers, are a hand sprayer, a plastic bowl, and a plastic seat.

And, the location. Halfway up a very steep hill, take a cab! If you can communicate effectively, they have a shuttle, and will pick you up / drop off. We were walking back up the hill after dinner, and the driver spotted us, so no walk! He was a madman behind the wheel, it was pretty much a mountain rally stage, with a Toyota mini-van!

Summary;

Stay there again? Sure
Stay in the Japanese room? No way

Probably better hotels, with better facilities, and better prices (off-season ghost town), but we didn't look.
