An electronic massage chair is available inside the room. The bath is facing the mountains and forest. The outdoor spring bath beside the river is fantastic. You have to take a short "mountain tram" ride...More

From the moment they pick you up from Oboke Station, there is a warm and enthusiastic welcome. We had the enthusiastic one, a driver with excellent broken English who managed to convey quite a lot about the spectacular Iya Gorge on the way up, stopping...More

This hotel is quite remote and we drove there. It has amazing views. We had booked a Japanese style room which wasn't really my husband's idea of fun but I enjoyed it for a night. We weren't quite clear on the etiquette - did we...More

My wife and I spent 3 days here on our honeymoon. Our room was spacious and refined with an unreal view of the valley. Outdoor bath with hot water from the spring. The meals were yet another highlight. Come with an appetite to every one!
