The hotel is in a quiet town with a small shrine nearby, a few good restaurants/cafes and lots of geology (volcano stuff) in the surrounding area.
The service at the Ryokan was excellent and the breakfast in another private room was a great experience but just so much food. The room itself was fairly spacious and very comfortable. We had both an indoor shower and a large outdoor bath with was surprisingly nice in the middle of Winter.
The hotel is in walking distance from the train station but it is a reasonable walk (~15 to 20 minutes). If coming by train (which is one of the most scenic routes I've ever been on) be aware that to see anything in the area except the shrine you really need to get a taxi/drive.More
