We chose this location because we wanted some peace and quiet away from our new home in Tokyo. We chose well. After living for 4 years near the Alps in Bavaria, we craved nature and mountains. The staff were friendly, the rooms were adequate and we enjoyed the Onsen after a day out exploring. The food is ok but not great. The location near the ropeway is convenient. The only thing I would change is that the building in front of this hotel desperately needs to be torn down. It's a little alarming driving up the first time and unfortunately our view from the room was of this building. The hotel is clean and the beds were comfortable. The onsen was very enjoyable.
So high up may not have wifi, no lift,you need to carry your stuff to the second floor, laundry and dryer is self service and free. Driving up the view is nice. Not easy to find, breakfast is inclusive but not buffet type.
