The Japanese experience, good location, hot spring! Apr 09, 2015
The traditional japanese accommodation (Ryokan) is located near to the Lake Ashi and Togendai Rope way, bus station. It is a little tricky to get to the station and lake from the motel. Either you follow the main road that lead you to a big U-turn at the end or you can just cut through a car park. It took only 5 minute to walk if you use the short cut.
We had a Japanese/ Western style room where there are two single bed ( western style) and a tatami tea area where you made tea with the Japanese tea pot they provided.
One thing we don't really like was the uneven lever inside the room. There were three different lever from the entrance of the room, the toilet and the living and bed area. They were hazardous trips. I tripped myself once and luckily I fell onto the bed!
The room was clean. The bathroom was tiny although they did provide shampoo, conditional and bath gel.
There is a Japanese style table for tea, so the room came with two kinds of tea leaves, tea cups and a electrical kettle to boil water for tea. It was fun to drink tea like a Japanese in that set up.
When they told us the breakfast was only served between 8-9am. We were like : why only one hour? Apparently their breakfast is a traditional Japanese set with soup and rice, fish and other things. So we really only need half an hour for breakfast. Not a buffet breakfast as usual. We love the breakfast!!
The motel is famous for their two outdoor onsen ( the public bath/ hot spring ) there are times you can book for private use or you can join the rest in the bath with separate male and female bath. Unfortunately we did not bring enough clothes so we didn't take the advantage of the onsen
They also provide bathrope in Japanese style that really made us feel like locals!
The complimentary wifi didn't work in the room and the breakfast room, however it worked fine by the reception area. I had to get outside of the room and walked to the reception area to get my internet.
