    We stayed at Henjoko-in for two nights in late fall. The temperature was near freezing, but our room warm and comfortable. For a temple, our room was very luxurious - - - we had control over the heat, enough futons to layer for softness, and our own bath

    It's the 4th time i stayed at Henjoko In. Because i loved it the past 3 times. This time the meals were taken in a big tatami room with all the other guests and not inside your room like before. I prefer in my room... Towels for Onsen were charged extra
