It is a very quiet hotel, standing in a forest next to Lake Chuzenji.
When I visited it for the first time, I thought it was located where I could see the surface of the water, but the truth is that it is up in the mountains. You have to climb from a lakeside road.
That’s why I did not hear the sound of the car at all and then realized that the inn was in a calm atmosphere wrapped in nature with a hush. Because of the location, I did not see this time, but deers and monkeys are expected to appear frequently.

In the building, you might see some the oldness partially, but is a thing of the degree not to be worried about for a stay.
The room was renewed in a Japanese and modern style, but has enough space that two guests can stay comfortably, relaxed and cozy, with a terrace. It is on the whole, well equipped and you will feel relaxed while there with a feeling of freedom.
The mat of the bed seemed thin, so I wondered if I could sleep warmly all right? But I unexpectedly did sleep comfortably.
In addition, it was very convenient that there were many electrical outlets so that the two of us could charge the cellphones, cameras and other handy devices we were carrying.
 Both dinner and breakfast were sufficient in quantity to make us full, since combined we had a small appetite. We enjoyed all the delicious dishes each of which was made very carefully one by one.
A popular dried bean curd dish and the steamed steak were the best of the articles. And we were delighted at the end of the dinner because they served Nikko buckwheat noodles instead of rice. However, I was surprised a little bit when the staff mentioned to just “please enjoy the meal” after setting up the dishes without any explanation of the menu. I know that a written menu was on the table. But, guests usually at least expect a brief comment about the item of the course. The free servicing of coffee and tea in the lobby is a very nice hospitality. The large communal baths are considerably wide in the hotels of Oku-Nikko. The temperature of the water in the outdoor baths is appropriate and comfortable for the season, including a relatively hot one and a lukewarm one. It was also enjoyable to see the changing color and cloudiness of the water during the morning and at dusk. Except for the episode of the menu explanation mentioned above, the manners and attitude of the staff was neither good nor bad. The staff was cheerful and comfortable with hospitality of a moderately distant sense. The prices of items in the vending machine in the hall were usually as expected, too.

The inn conformed with what I expected. The maple tree begins to change color which make the inn further recommendable for your trip in near future.
Since it is a hot spring, it has a smell of sulfur, but the water is gentle to the skin and I took the bath three times with my husband. Dishes were arranged to entertain guest by chef’s creative ideas to enjoy a season visually like using egg yolk to liken a persimmon. All meals were delicious. Because staff were smiling to guests in service, I thought of coming back soon. However, I scored a four stars, because too many stairs such as the ways to dining room and to hot spring, might be a trouble to me. I wanted to use it if there is an opportunity. + More
About the hot spring, cuisine and service. All of them were excellent. I love to come back.
I used the inn for the night before trekking Okunikko. I just selected the inn without collecting information, but friendly warm hospitality was very likable to me and I liked meals and hot spring very much. Facility was simple but clean and just matching to the resort hotel in the forest. Just minor disappointment was that there were hand marks left on a glass partition in the bathing room next to our guest room. Saying that, I liked the inn as a whole and put it in my list of hotels that I want to use in the future again. + More
I stayed the inn for summer resort (2 nights each) in 5 years in a row. I was satisfied by the good quality of comfortable stay, hot spring and meals. One down side is that a person who was the manager until last year changed his job and I could not see him this time neither his alternative “face” there. A hotel with this small size of business needs a kind of “face” of the hotel like a capable manager or landlady. In addition, my concerns is that there were scratches and stains on some lighting equipments and steps in bathing room, and that kind small considerations of staff seemed declining. + More
Meals including breakfast, was a great satisfaction with many dishes and good taste. Particularly, a dried bean curd with sesame source in dinner and dressing with nuts in the breakfast were refreshing and appreciated for thoughtful preference of chef. When I thought finished breakfast and returned to my room without telling anyone, staff called me at my room to say I have not finished dessert and they were going to bring it to my room, which I appreciate very much for their kind service. I could wear cloth comfortably after enjoying atmosphere of the hot opaque water bath, due to the good air condition of dressing room. Personally I will be further happier if a stand shop there had a milk, because I love to drink a glass of milk after taking bath. + More
