Truely Serenity... It is difficult to find hotel on foot especially when you have big luggage. Non-Japanese speaking should seek help for hotel pick up, that they are willing to do so. Overall, impressed with service, onsen, half meal compare to the better bet price. The view from room is very stunning during autumn color with river. Should be splendid during snow as well. This is for more beautiful from the web photos. i would recommend green hotel kisen.
