A 20-minute hike from the JR station, it's right at the edge of town: be prepared for long walk to the 7 famous onsen. The rooms are spacious and clean: due to the layout, all rooms have a view of the garden courtyard. However, the bathroom smelled like smoke, as did the hallway. Dinner was a gut-busting FOURTEEN courses. Front desk had a man who spoke sufficient English. The in-house baths were small, but had both an indoor and outdoor bath and was well-lite with nice amenities. This booking does not include the day pass to the 7 onsen in Kinosaki.
