Very Good8.0
nice onsen getaway. food is so-so
everything was good except maybe the food. the food could have been better, but i guess you are going there for the onsen. also the waiter that served us the food had a little body order which added to the experience negatively. but overall the onsen is very nice and the service is excellent.

An experience of a lifetime
It was a wonderful experience for both my husband and I as we were on our honeymoon. We were greeted with polite and helpful staff. We had wonderful dinner and breakfast meals and was explained on the ingredients in our food. It was amazing to experience the Onsen and it was nicely equipped. We took the room with an open air bathroom and it was wonderful to gaze at the night stars and sakura blooms while soaking I'm a hot wooden bathtub. The futons and pillows enabled us to have a good dreamless sleep that we haven't had in a long while. It was a wonderful place to be for a honeymoon
