“Great Buffet!”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Kinugawa Gyoen was an inexpensive (About $70.00 per person) Japanese style hotel that was about a 10 minute walk from the Kinugawa Onsen station. The all you can eat buffet for dinner and breakfast was amazing. Their advertisment mentions over 70 different dishes for both meals. For dinner, they have a steak and tempura bar. And non alcoholic drinks are also unlimited. Crab legs, sushi, seasonal side dishes, chocolate fountain, desserts, etc. The list goes on and on. The food was of quality and very delicious. I would recommend this hotel if you just need an overnight place to stay and enjoy a buffet style setting. The front desk staff was very courteous. They also offer shuttle service in the morning and afternoon to or from the train station, and to various attractions such as Tobu World.

My wife and I stayed here on a special deal for the off-season. The hotel is huge, though only a third of the building was in use while we were there. Our room was a spacious Japanese style river-view room. Both the main baths and the outside Rotenburo baths were well maintained and pleasant. The water here is not the smelly sulpur-type, yet is great for the skin. If you have itchy winter skin, this water will fix it (temporarily) after a single dip.
The food was served viking style in a huge dining room - there were some 80 different dishes to choose from. Everything from cooked-to-order steak to sushi.
The staff was friendly and helpful, meeting us at our car and carrying our bags to the hotel.
Kinugawa Onsen, as a town, is not much. One goes for the hotel and its attractions, so one night is plenty. There are some walks in the area, and the river gorge itself is pretty, though the ugly concrete buildings lining it take some getting used to. Still, I would highly recommend this hotel for a leisurely overnight.
