The hotel was a bit of a trek to get to from Gora station, especially with kids and a lot of luggage. We certainly got a good workout heading there. (The website says to get off at a different stop for an easier walk but because of the typhoon in October, the cable car was damaged so we had to take a replacement bus which brought us to Gora.). However, once we got there, we loved the place. We were travelling with 3 families and it was perfect. The Onsen facilities were wonderful, and the access to a private half hour slot for the Onsen was a great bonus. The tatami beds were so comfortable and both the dinner and breakfast offered high quality food in abundance. The service was excellent in every way. Overall, it was a relaxing and fun stay and we all agreed that we would stay there again in the future.
