6/10 Good

a bit disappointed because there are still contraceptive packs left, so disgust. The hotel is located slightly up so it is a little difficult to park at night . for a public bath is quite good. The toilet is a little smelly. But breakfast is really good

You must try the food
If you’re staying here, you must book the dinner and breakfast option. The food is incredible and the whole experience is so special, it was our highlight from Japan. We really liked our traditional Japanese room and found the futons very comfortable. The only thing which we felt could have been updated was the shower but that’s a minor niggle.

A larger complex at the top of a steep driveway. Rooms are compact with nice lake views (not Mt Fuji). Staff are friendly but most are not confident with English. Food is good - selection of Japanese dishes.
