Great onsen experience for such price!”

This is the third onsen hotel I have the pleasure to visit and all in all that one was the best, although there were several of small things I’ve seen done or thought of better. The hotel staff is very good: professional and helpful, one can experience full Japanese hospitality one should expect in such a place. Among the staff there are people speaking very good English - not typical in such establishment. The hotel location is in the middle of nowhere but this is all right really as all you need the hotel provides. You can just enjoy the hot springs fully there. I had injured my legs earlier so was not very keen to stroll around but previous research showed for a day or two you can find there some nice routes. Access from the station can’t be easier either. Rooms are slightly ran down but not over the level I’m used to within this price range. They are clean enough and spacious (Japanese room for two). Ours had nice mountain view (with train tracks in the foreground but I liked it), our friends got similar (but with road instead so they were less happy). Selection of complimentary tea snacks was great every day. The onsen took me a little by surprise. First of all they have two open baths (rotenburos) of which one is nicer (arrangement, plants surrounding, bath sizes). One is for men, the other for women but they alternate them every morning (so they say, during our stay it seemed to be every two mornings) so if you stay long enough you will experience both. For such a big hotel they both should just be bigger really. There was no crowd but sometimes it was close to it. But the really surprising thing was there seems to be no rule there against tattoos. Not in written, not in pictograms or other signs. We actually met a Japanese grandpa one evening there with full back tattoo. Now I’m not strongly against it really but this is kinda strange if you are familiar with onsen etiquette. The hotel has also its own foot bath on the terrace with a view on small park arra

We were made to feel so welcome. The Management and staff were very hospitable and accommodating!”

Upon arrival we were greeted by a warm reception party offering warm smiles a friendly welcoming and collecting our baggage. The resort and grounds are absolutely stunning and the view from our room of the surrounding hillsides was beautiful in the afternoon and evening, but the morning mist made them more majestic. As Americans on our first visit to Japanese Onsens we were worried we would be treated as outsiders or make a mistake and embarrass ourselves. We honestly had a wonderful stay and felt so comfortable and relaxed! I think you would have to be a very selfish or disrespectful person to not enjoy a refreshing and relaxing escape. Mr. Fukushima made it perfectly clear to us during check in that we were to relax and enjoy all the amenities and that we could wear our yukata and slippers anywhere in the resort...except the onsens! We absolutely loved our visit and wished we had booked a longer stay...Next time we will!

The hotel is nice, a little bit of age but well maintain. The food were great! only down-side is that it is a bit out of town and traveling at night is kind of scary.

中国旅行者を受け入れる準備が出来ていない。”

せっかくお風呂が中国人のマナーの悪さで台無し。 中国人はバスタオル身につけてお風呂に入る。 入って来て、シャワー浴びない。 岩風呂とヒノキ風呂で入って大声で林を挟んで大声で叫びながら入っている。とてもうるさく、途中お風呂出て夜遅くに入り直しました。 中国人を受け入れるならば、最低の注意書きを浴室および更衣室に書くべき。 更衣室にも身体拭かずに入って来てビチャビチャ。 中国人の団体が宿泊する時には、スタッフを最低3人以上配置すべき。 一人いましたが、一人では注意しきれない。見ていてかわいそう。 お風呂は素晴らしいのに、本当に残念。 朝は朝で、携帯電話持った日本人が入って来て、露天風呂の写真撮りまくってた。 もっと監視の目を。 宿泊者が注意することではない。

힐링 여행을 하기엔 최고의 위치였다. 직원들이 매우 친절했으며, 가격대비 정말 최고의 방과 식사였다. 다만 숙소 인근에 편의점이 없지만, 숙소 내부에 자판기를 이용하면 맥주 구입이 용이하다. 온천탕이 인상깊었으며, 온천후 제공되는 광천수가 기가막혔다. 숙소 이용을 만족하고 구불구불한 산길을 올라 근처의 모토스 호수에 도착했을 때의 감동은 정말 최고였다. 후지산이 보고 싶을때면 시모베 호텔이 생각날 것이다.
