Lovely Japanese onsen town with beautiful river trail for walking as well as nice old streets for shopping. Definitely worth to spend 1-2 days to enjoy the scenery and excellent onsen.

Was here just now for 1 hour. Very busy at 8pm. Can find cheaper onsen near by. Shoe cabinet is not sufficient for mine. Best to bring own shampoo and soap and towel.
