What a wonderful experience from the minute we arrived after a hard day of travel. Greeted with a beautiful cottage with private spring bath, a delightful inn keeper who made us feel welcome with tea, treats and origami cranes as well as a genuine traditional experience we will never forget. What a wonderful way to start our stay in japan.

Don't go, find a better deal in surrounding hotels
We went (couple) to this hotel because wanted private spa experience in room as described in room description. No private spa was available, only shared spa area between different rooms . This spa could only be used If no one else was using spa. I don't consider this a private room spa but rather a shared spa (if available). We did not have chance to go. We had to book another private spa in area. The experience was very expensive, disappointing and I felt as a I was deceived (not to say taken) by hotel description and paid way more than other surrounding hotels. The only positive point was that staff was extremely friendly, helpful and our food plan was excellent. however, this could not compensate for not having a private room spa or fireplace. The residence was also very humide and the traditional bed was un sleepable. Wifi and water was only available at lobby (50 meters from room during the rain). All in all, I would not recommend this hotel. Value for money was very low.

Kimiko-san, our greeter at Yamagaso was amazing. A wonderful experience, the family onsen seemed to always be open right when we wanted it. The only regret is that we booked with out the meal. From what I've read that is a must and we plan on getting it next time. It was a wonderful experience in a beautiful setting... not sure what the negative reviewers saw that we didn't. Highly recommended.
