“It is long overdue review as we stayed in the Hotel last winter.
Kanaya located just beside the Kinugawa river, and within 5 minutes walking distance from the Kinugawa Onsen Train Station. It is a Japanese westernised type of hotel where we have option to stay at Japanese or western style room. We have selected the Western Room as we will be staying at another ryokan after that.
We stayed in a room with a balcony next to the river, the view is nice, especially in the morning when the sun was shining onto the mountain to turn it to a golden colour. The room is comfortable and well appointed.
There are 2 public Onsen which rotated a certain interval to allow male and female guests, I tried both, was nice, particularly the outdoor one.
The dinner and breakfast were superb, I must say that it is better than the other ryokan, which we stayed later. Please don’t get me wrong, both are first class.
We came during winter, but we are sure that the hotel will be at its best during autumn when the river bank is full of red leaves.”
