Upon entering this cross between a luxury Western-style hotel and traditional inn, guests remove their shoes and socks, and sit at a counter bar with their tired feet resting in the hot-mineral-spring bath under the bar, and enjoy a tea or beer as they check in. There are Japanese rooms, Western rooms, and rooms that combine both, with raised islands of tatami on top of wood flooring. There are two shared onsen baths, one outdoors and one indoors. Some rooms have private
baths on terraces with wonderful views of the mountains.
