Fantastic experience. I felt like a guest in someone’s home; I arrived early and the caretaker was nice enough to hold my luggage while I explored the town. Not to mention the private hotspring and it’s night time view of the illuminated mountain-side. Truly amazing!

Traditional experience with modern amenities

Spacious, traditional rooms with futons laid out on tatami, and actual paper shoji screens separating rooms. Quite comfortable if one is used to sleeping on a lowered surface, but may prove an issue for mobility impaired guests. In the same vein, accessibility is extremely limited - guest rooms are accessible via stairs, ditto for the dining hall. Guests with mobility issues may need to look elsewhere. Dining is kaiseki-style in the evenings, and breakfasts also have quite the spread, with excellent variety and competent preparation. Finally, the inn is located extremely close to Gora train station, and I'd like to inform all potential guests that there is an underpass right next to the station exit, running under the cable line line, that allows commuters to get to said inn much quicker than my rather more circuitous route around the station. Dragging a suitcase around really makes traversing mountain roads a lot more arduous than usual, so please take this shortcut.

See the real Japan

Very traditional experience, and great for a night or two max. Meals unbelievably good. Futon beds are not my fave (cos we aren't used to them). Nothing a chiropractor cant fix!! Haha
