Stayed for 2 nights. Great experience. Spent some time checking in since we didn't know any Japanese and there weren't any English speaking front desk staff when we arrived in the afternoon.
But, I must say the front desk did their best to still help out as much as possible to work around the language issue. And then VoiceTrans app helped a little too.
Locale is awesome... View onto a gushing river and the sound of water running was great in the mornings. 7-8 min walk to the nearest train station. Note that this is an unstaffed station (except the guard, who was very helpful dspute the language gap). Dusk happens really early. Nearest dinner is just next to the train station. Great food and reasonably priced. Though didn't find any convenience stores nearby. Dusk is very early at this time of the year.
Enjoyable experience overall!!More
