Traditional. Clean. Great experience.
Traditional. Clean. Great experience. The staff was extremely nice. The massage therapist - only had the female, was amazing and enjoyed the late night hours of the massage to accommodate travelers with a full day. Not close but not too far from transportation/food/shopping. Location appeared to be in a residential part of town so we had to venture out. We utilized the washing and dryer - you may need to hang items even after dryer as it doesn't work the best. But very convenient when traveling!

Very Good 8.0
Not worth the price.
Room was large and spacious. Quite clean. Onsen was OK, expected somewhat better facilities. I feel it was higher priced than should be.
