This hotel is in fairly a remote and beautify location. It is 1.5 hours by bus from Kinguawa Onsen train station 9which is 30 mins by train from Nikko). You get off the bus at Meotobuchisen Onsen which is the end of the line: this is just a car park and bus waiting room. Here a bus from the hotel...

I have been here three times during the winter. Love bathing in onsen surrounded by snow. The hotel is very remote takes a while to get to by private shuttle bus (included in your stay).

Value: Pricey but it must be tough to operate such a remote facility. Sleep Quality: We were in the last room over the outside spa. There was quite a bit of noise. Cleanliness:...
