Situated on the outskirts of town the Turtle Inn Annex is a great place if you want peace and quiet. A small river runs behind the Annex and out the front door to the right is a beautiful walking path. But there isn't much else to do. There is an onsen but we did not use it. The lobby is small but the breakfast area is open, airy and the breakfast is quite good of an egg, fruit, pastry, juice, and coffee. Rooms are basic tatami style with private baths. Our room had a not-so-good smell and we suspect it was because we were on the ground floor so the plumbing and perhaps sulfur-y smell of nearby springs could account for that. Everything was spotlessly clean. But at night you are trapped with not much to do. There is nothing close by that was even remotely good to eat. Every place we tried was average at best. There are two convenience stores on the other side of the river. Keep your eyes out for deer! We saw a large group of them in front of the hotel!
