Been staying in many ryokans in various Japan onsen areas. This one is the second worst experience so far. Staff was nice but the condition of the room and public baths were just average and looked unappealing. Booked here for three nights.

It's located near hillside and connected to another property, beautiful view of the hill from there. We are served with tea and some snack during our arrival, while waiting to get into a Japanese room that I reserved. There is a small souvenir shop in the property too. Staff can speak some English but they are trying their best to...

Located in Arima which is only about an hour bus ride from Osaka. If you want a hotel to relax and rejuvenate then this is your place. If you are American, like me and it's your first time to an Onsen, you will find it relaxing and a little surprising. You will find yourself with 99 percent naked Japanese boys...
