This property feels quite retro (the name could make a few Japanese chuckle, "Western souvenirs hotel" anyone ? :) but not old.
The rooms are quite standard for a ryokan (clean, large enough for 4 futons) and the quality of the food is fine.
What sets this property apart is, of course, its proximity to the quite impressive Fukuroda falls but, above all, its unique outdoor onsen by the riverside: enjoying the hot baths while enjoying the sight of the river running by, the smell of the forest on the other side, what a unique delight!
In other words, if you are into onsen, you will not be disappointed by their outdoor facilities.More
