This was the most wonderful stay of our honeymoon. The staff of Marumine Kanko were incredibly kind, attentive and professional. We were mainly greeted and looked after by one member of staff who spoke extremely good English. The room was clean, comfortable and very beautiful. We were given a view over the mountains - it was incredible. When we arrived at the closest station (which is home to the famous cat stationmaster), there was a shuttle/taxi waiting for us (which had not been arranged in advance) to take us straight there. On arrival we were sat in a beautiful lobby, overlooking a garden which was so serene in the rain. The food was fantastic, and definitely the best we ate in Japan. There are different areas to eat in at the hotel and I recommend you try as many as you can. The buffet breakfast was also delicious. The onsen itself was also brilliant of course, and there was even Karaoke in the hotel! We cannot wait to return!
