Four of us walked most of the gorge walk, which was a really pleasant, scenic walk. My wife and I were shown to our room, where the hostess laid out tea and a small moshi (a sort of soft pastry).

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sandankyo Hotel, a traditional wooden Japanese-style inn, is located at the entrance of Sandankyo Gorge, which is designated as a National Scenic Beauty. As you surround yourself with the songs of the local birds, the lively grens, the rush of crystal water, the colorful autumn foliage or the gorge covered in snow, it almost feels as if time is moving slowly. Stay withh us to relax among the natural blessings of the gorge, and to feel at one with the surroundings. Experience our Japanese cuisine, using Sansai, local edible wild plants. We also have a natural hot spring bath for you to enjoy. Let us provide you with a relaxing exerience that can only be offered here, at the Sandankyo Hotel. We are looking forward to your visit! ... more   less
