We booked a room for 3 ppl ..38000jpy /person . The Japanese traditional set menu dinner is below average .. the facility is too old .. I would say it's old style hotel before economy crisis , not the one for young generation ... you definitely can find more private choice around

The room is Japanese style, very elegant and comfortable. They offered bathrobe or, in Japanese, yukata. And the hot spring in the hotel is really good and special which has three colors. And you can relish yourself in some massage afterward. We all enjoyed our stay in the hotel. Highly recommend!
