We didn't know about the free shuttle van so we ended up walking uphill from the station. The view from this hotel is by far the best thing. It is very secluded and peaceful. I travelled with 5 people and our japanese style room was absolutely beautiful and so clean. The hotel features 2 onsen areas - rooftop rotated between men and women day and night as well as a relaxation room. We didn't reserve dinner and the room service option was sold out and the closest option suggested was closed so we had to go into town (majority of restaurants close early). But the breakfast made up for that. They had personal hamachi clay grills cooking some hida beef for you as well as a pre-set meal set up in front of you but also buffet option for more food if you wanted. We were definitely living it up in this hotel and wished we stayed here another night.
