We stayed on the end of Feb; the snowy scene was so beautiful esp. in the open air onsen area!. Food was also really delicious, esp. for the dinner time buffet with all you can eat sashimi and sushi! love them so much. Very easy to get there, just half hour-ish by train from Sendai station plus 5 mins free shuttle bus to the hotel, within this short time you can experience a very different environment; from the bustling and lively town of Sendai to the peaceful and natural scene of the Japanese countryside. So recommended for a short escape from busy life in Sendai.
