8.42km from Bitru-Tei KazunoSummary: Great hotel with amazing views, delicious food, friendly staff (that can speak a little English) and amazing indoor and outdoor onsen with good views. However, the hotel can be a little bit inaccessible and air-conditioning only in the summer season. Since the hotel is located in the Akita mountain regions, the view from my room window is amazing with a view of the mountainside and the river running beside the hotel. I had dinner and breakfast in the hotel's dining room. Both were buffet-style and the food served in both were delicious with sufficient variety. The staff also laid out the futon in my Japanese-styled room while I was having dinner (which I didn't know about). So I was quite surprised when I returned to my room to find out that the futons were already laid out, so excellent room service in my opinion. The hotel has split-gender onsen baths with the male side having an additional access to a sauna and 3 different baths with 1 indoor and 2 outdoor baths. All of them have great views of the mountainside and river. The hotel can be a little inaccessible with not much trains running through the area but that is kinda normal since the hotel is deep in the mountains and the views are certainly worth the effort to travel all the way there! There is no air-conditioning in the rooms during Spring, Autumn and Winter Season. I got the helpful staff to open the windows that allowed cool night air to enter the room which was cooling enough for me to sleep. So it is only a small issue for me. Overall, I would stay at this hotel again if I ever pass through the area again!
