Interesting remote location with shuttle bus service to/from Tsumago and Nagiso, but only at 910 and 950am and 410 and 510 pm. The amenities did not seem to be of a good quality as at other inns in this range. The kaiseki meal seemed less sophisticated than I've had, perhaps because it did use all local ingredients, including deer, horse and ayu fish. However the meal did include excellent wagyu beef for at-table grilling. Dinner is served in private sections in the banquet hall, not in the room.. Overall, a satisfactorily quiet, restful, comfortable place to stay.
