Read more 妻の誕生日に宿泊させていただきましたが、予めお願いしてあったケーキの用意と夕食時の忙しい時間にも関わらず、こちらのワガママでケーキとプレゼントを部屋まで運んでいただき、なおかつホテルからもプレゼントをいただきました。 本当にありがとうございました。 妻も思いの外に感激してくれて、子供たちと計画したサプライズを成功させることができました。 ほかにも深夜に足湯をしたいとお願いしたところ、わざわざ私たちのために照明をつけてくださりありがとうございました。 とても気持ちよく妻とも久しぶりにゆっくり話ができました。

I stayed on my wife's birthday, but despite having prepared the cake and the busy time at dinner, I was able to carry the cake and present to the room with this selfish mother, and from the hotel Also received a present. I'm really thankful to you. My wife was also impressed with my surprise and was able to make the planned surprise with the children successful.

Read more お客さんが帰るので慌ただしい中、写真撮影も嫌な顔せずしていただきありがとうございました。卓球も無料で楽しめて楽しい時間を過ごすことができました。温泉の泉質は、とても良く飲めるように使い捨てのコップを置いてくれる配慮されており流石温泉を売りにしてるだけの事はあると思いました。そのような配慮は初めてでしたので新鮮でした。夜の売店の時間をもっと長くしてくれると嬉しいです。部屋の老朽化は仕方が無いと思いますが露天風呂の雑草が気になりました。温泉メインで考えていたのでその他の設備でここの比重が大きかったので2としました。他は綺麗にされていて気持ちよく滞在できました。総合的に温泉と囲炉裏風の食事と満足行くものでした。

Thank you for not having a bad look at the photo shoot during the rush as the customers return. I enjoyed table tennis for free and had a good time. The spring quality of the hot spring was considered to put a disposable cup so that I could drink very well, and I thought that there was something just to sell the hot spring hot spring. Such consideration was fresh for the first time. I'm glad to extend the time of the night shop more. I think that there is no way for aging of the room, but weeds in the open-air bath. As I was thinking in the hot spring main, I decided to be 2 because the specific gravity of here was large in other facilities. Others were cleaned and I could stay comfortably. Overall, I was satisfied with the hot spring and hearth meal.

You may enjoy two types of hot spring with the public bath and the open air bath.

The spacious public bath and the open air bath which is facilitated next to it may be used all night until 9:00am in the morning the next day. 

The "Yakushi hot spring" is especially effective and although there may be differences according to the individual, it is said to be good for neuralgia and arthralgia and many guests repeatedly come to take a bath in this hot spring. The reason why this hot spring (sodium hydrogen carbonate spring) is said to be a spring for the beautiful is because the alkaline spring cleans the oil and secretion of the skin, causing the skin to become smooth. 

A permit to drink the spring is attained and by drinking, health from the inside may be expected.
