Hotel with an excellent view of Akaya Lake. Our room was a Western-style Japanese room facing the lake and offers great views Good service all the way from check-in to check-out.
Take advantage of the free shuttle bus service from Gokan station or Jomo Kogen station. It is a 20 minute ride to the hotel from Gokan station. Take note that there is only 1 pick-up. Otherwise, you will have to take the public bus. Similarly, only 1 free shuttle bus drop-off. Make your reservations early.
The baths are spacious and there is a large outdoor hot springs bath for each side. The men's and women's side switch at 7pm. Enjoyed the hot springs bath at the hotel.
Dinner is tofu-based kaiseki. Hotel specialises in tofu and showcases the different ways it can be used. Meat and sashimi is provided with the kaiseiki and it was all very tasty. Breakfast is buffet style and offers a good selection of choices.
Definitely would return to stay at this hotel if visiting the Akaya Lake again.
