10/10 Exceptional

Perfect getaway
Lovely hotel! While the hotel itself it a little outdated, the staff are incredibly friendly (and know English, which was good for us!). The best part is the onsen, which is quite large and does mixed bathing (they provide you with swim costumes). You are in a great location to get to the ropeway (3 minutes walking), or to go down to the kogen onsen and the brown bear center (1 hour by car). The gorge and waterfalls are also nearby. The buffet was also quiet expansive. It’s not great for vegetarians, but I never came away hungry. My partner, who eats meat, was delighted by the crab - crab in most of the food items, and also crab legs.

Great onsen but old hotel room
The hotel rooms are quite old and not comfortable bedding. But the open air mixed onsen pays it all! Must do the open air onsen.

I like outdoor onsen with hotel suit and view from room. But the shower and dinner menu should be improved. Hotel should provide shuttle bus from/to Kamikawa Station.

2/10 Poor

Worst Ryokan ever
The hotel is currently under renovation and hotel is covered by scaffoldings. Booked the river view room but was completely blocked. However we were not informed during check in or any time during the booking. Called the helpline but obviously there was nothing done. Buffet food was horrid, like serving a zoo of people. Worse dinner in our entire trip. Ryokans are always famous for their dinner but this one is truly disappointing and disgusting. Every evening, bus loads of Chinese, Taiwan and Hongkong tourists would check in and onsen is always noisy and crowded. Not worth going to this hotel, nothing spectacular or anything worth raving about. It probably has 3 stars rating because it has random people rating it 5 stars with no reviews. Read all the ratings carefully before u book. It’s really really horrid.
