The hotel we will keep coming back in the future
One of the best choices I had made was to book this hotel. The helpful staff and hotel transport drivers even brought us to the Jigokudani Monkey Park and Sora Terrace when they knew we did not know how to go there. On our visit to Sora Terrace, the driver drove to pick us up when we contacted the hotel to say that the place had closed for the day, it had turned dark (5.30 pm) and that we were stranded at the exit of the place. We are most grateful to the staff there. particularly the drivers and counter staff.

Incredible Onsen, dinner and staff
Truly great hotel. We got picked up from the station for no extra charge which is always nice. Staff were incredibly friendly from the very outset. English speaking was limited but really didn't matter as the staff went above and beyond in satisfying requests including a very special kids meal. The Onsen natural hot spring bath (indoors and outdoors) was very special. It was also open all night so I went in a few times in the middle of the night when jet lagged. Every course at dinner was delicious. Local area limited but free transfer to and from monkey park, which we were there to see. Accommodation like a traditional woman but very very reasonable price. Very satisfied customer, especially thanks to the amazing staff
