We stayed in Aoi and man was this place terrific. Our own Garden and hot tub, perfect service. The location in Gora is very easy for seing the sights. We even got lucky and saw Mt Fuji on a clear day.
While this place is expensive you get what you pay for and here it is so very true.
The quality of the food is most amazing and the grounds are beautiful. One barely sees othe guests.
One note - pack light - you don't need much as you live in your Kimonos while there.
