We loved this place. We were made to feel very welcome by the staff. The room is traditional Japanese style and roomy (we had 3 adults and 2 kids). The outdoor onsens were great! Yes the place is a little worn and dated but we thought it was a good place for a good price (given it includes dinner and breakfast). We loved the amazing Japanese dinner and breakfast that we were provided (not having had Japanese food like this we all really enjoyed it and tried everything) There was plenty of food. You sleep on mattresses on the floor and it was one of the best night sleeps we have had! It is a 3 minute walk up the road to the place from the station and the rope cable car. The staff were very kind to drive us back to Gora station (so we didn't need to take the cable car back down). Thanks to the lovely staff for making this a wonderful stay (we wish we had stayed two nights).
