Very friendly & obliging staff-we were picked up from the station in spite of booking people telling us they wouldn't do it. Also drove us up to the Snow Monkey Park, picked us up afterwards and dropped us at the station- no extra charge !
The 2 males had just enough English to eventually understand & although the little old lady had none, she was utterly charming.
we found sleeping in the traditional way a little daunting with the mattress on the floor & pillows that seemed to be full of rice ! We're coddled soft westerners so it took a while to adapt & we came away enjoying the experience but looking forward to a regular bed.
The traditional breakfast (optional @ ¥1500 each) was awesome but sitting crosslegged for it was painful(we're past 70 & not very flexible ).
Loved the onsen.
Located a short walk away from shops & restaurants
