View from room was excellent and calming. Staff could not communicate well in English but they tried their best to express through body language and google translate. Just right opposite to bus station. Could help book night tour and shuttle bus to the cable car terminal. Dinner and breakfast were served in the private room in the restaurant. Paid 2000yen to book the family-bath. The water looked milky and was with sulphur smell. Could see the water running from the nicely decorated pipes outside. Was very enjoyable looking at the forest view while staying in the hotspring. There was also a sauna room in the bath we booked. It was interesting but we were too hot to enjoy it after the hotspring. Vending machine in the fukudaya sold a good variety of drinks, including cold milk and yogurt drink, which was an excellent choice after hotspring time for us. Highly recommended!
