I was fortunate to get a room for Saturday-Monday at the end of August not very far in advance. It might have been the last room available. Would recommend booking early.
The views and location are spectacular. The rooms are what you would expect from a high-end ryokan. It's a short walk from the "peeing boy" statue, but otherwise you need to rent a car to get around this area.
Took one trip down on the cable car to the rotemburo by the river. It was very relaxing. The food was also great. Dinner the second night was one of the best meals I've ever had in Japan.
