Sanso Trnsui is one of the best onsen retreats I have visited in Japan. The ryokan is located deep into the woods in Oita, which is quite difficult to get to unless you are driving. It is well worth the drive. A river and waterfalls runs right by the lodge, and you can hear fresh water running by it. What makes this ryokan so special is the baths. They have 3 public onsens, and 5 private baths. One of the baths is located right by the river, while you can see the waterfalls from the other. It was so beautiful, that I didn't want to leave. Also, they served home made tofu for breakfast, which was very delicious. I'd recommend Sanso Tensui to anyone who wants to get an authentic onsen ryokan experience.
