- nice staff, always trying to help. They prepared the futons for us while we were at diner. - delicious meals, both at diner and breakfast (Japanese). We stayed two nights and we never ate twice the same dish. - very spacious room (Japanese style) - the baths were great
- the hotel hasn’t been renovated for a long time. Although it’s clean, it could use some refurbishment. - not so many buses per day go through this Onsen, so careful planning is necessary.
The food was incredible, as were the hot spring experiences. Our room had a view of the Oto River, and we spent a lot of time soaking in the hot spring pools by the river then swimming in the cooler water to cool off. The dinner and breakfast were absolutely delicious - definitely recommend choosing the Japanese meals.
The traditional Japanese sleeping is not as comfortable as western beds but we wanted a Ryokan experience so we were happy.
The room has a real Japanese style and it’s very spacious. The view on the river and the mountain is beautiful and relaxing. We enjoyed a lot the 2 different onsen available for guests, as well as a bath in the river by the hot spring, just in front of the hotel. We appreciated very much also the free shuttle bus to Kumano Hongū Taisha. The bus stop to the main destinations in the area is just outside the hotel.
Western breakfast could be improved.
Our room was perfect with a view onto the river. So nice to have the hotel Onsen on the other side of the river. Reception staff loyal and really helpful and kind . Helped us with bags and connecting with transport etc. This was the best part of our Japan experience. Food and restaurant staff also kind and generous..... so much food!
Nothing to complain about
Location, Onsen and Service were great. My "helper" didn't speak any English at all and she just kept on talking even though I didn't understand a word, and she was too cute to complain...
Onsen was great
When you stay at Kawayu Onsen Fujiya in Tanabe, you'll be on a river, just steps from Kawayu Hot Springs and a 5-minute drive from Kumano Hongu Taisha Shrine. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, a safe deposit box at the front desk, and an elevator (lift). Free self parking is available onsite.
