          Rooms typically small, affordable for Kyoto. The restaurant is not so good. Food is cheap and flavorless. Most items consist of tofu if you're doing the meal that comes with the room. There's a sauna, and the vending machines have beer in them :)

          The onsen at the hotel is indeed gender separated. clothing is not allowed, nor are tattoos. Did not see any monitoring, but I must say that the hotel is pretty strict about customers following onsen ethics/rules.
          We are flying into Narita airport 5pm Monday Oct 10. We will have rail pass. Is it possible to get to your location after clearing customs that late in the day? I am unfamiliar with how to navigate reservations, etc for Green JR Pass. Thank you
