4/10 Fair

Room rate is unreasonably high considering the quality of services and the hardwares. The meals are of acceptable standard but not impressive esp. the Hida Beef is disappointing in terms of quantity and cooking skill. I have to walk for over a hundred meters with several heavy luggages

With an exceptional location and outside natural springs that must rate as some of the most dramatic anywhere this really is an amazing place. Dinner was fantastic too, much better than expected.

Amazing onsen! In particular, there are two private open-air onsen that can be reserved on a first-come-first-serve basis, and are located next to the river (about 3 mins walk from the ryokan). The only issue I had is that rooms do not come with toilet - need to use a common toilet.
