This was one of our night stops on our Kumano Kodo hike. Fuss free service. Decent food. Alright onsen. All rooms have a waterfall and river view. Shuttle service also available to the starting point of the next days hike.

Room tip: I think all rooms have a river view, higher floor might be nicer

The front desk staff had good english, which make things easier.
Staff was friendly and cooperative.
Traditional rooms are ok, but not astounding. The river passing by is a nice touch.
Rest of the premise is uninspired (long cold corridors, stairs everywhere, hot spring bath is so-so, ...)
Restaurant is held by a lovely lady, has few dishes but they are very good (traditional Japanese). She doesn't speak english, but will make sure you have everything you need (and even show you how to mix the food and dishes). Excellent mood.
Traditional Japanese breakfast (noodles, fish, etc)
Credit cards accepted.

Room tip: rooms are only available on the river side.

Hotel Nosegawa is just a little jewel in the mountains of Japan.

A little off kilter and definitely not 'luxury', Nosegawa makes up for its rough edges with the most charming and warm hearted staff, lovely rooms, delicious food, amazing onsen (and even a massage chair for a hikers tired legs)! The manager is utterly delightful and simply the sweetest man you will ever meet. On our arrival we were shown to our clean and spacious river facing room and swiftly went to have an onsen. Beautiful shampoos and body washes are available and even body creams and face washes (something our 5* hotel in Tokyo didn't offer!) We went down to an extensive and delicious supper served by a gorgeous young girl on her summer job who spoke perfect English and was simply a delight to talk to (we've even swapped email addresses)! Like a traditional ryokan, futon beds are assembled while at supper and our sleep on them was very restful.

Perhaps what sums up this special place best is the fact that the next morning when we didn't have it in us to hike back to Koya, we were told we could take a bus. What we didn't know was that the bus was the chef driving us the 45 minutes back in his car - free of charge (waved off by the gorgeous manager from the porch).

If your looking for 5* glamour this is not the place for you. But if you are doing the Kohechi trail, hiking in the area or simply want an evening out of Koyasan in a place full of soul and charm, then look no further.
