This is a thermal springs resort and we've stopped for a day/night to take the waters. We had a really relaxing and enjoyable 24 hours here. It is a Japanese run resort centred on natural hot springs that bubble away near the river. We spent a few hours in the outdoor natural pools (albeit spending some time swatting away pesky sand flies) and then the Japanese baths that were inside. The waters are supposed to be good for arthritis and E seemed to benefit. We'd also booked Japanese massages and by late afternoon felt rejuvenated. Our meal that night was also Japanese - wonderful tempura, seafood udon noodles and crispy chicken (the descriptions don't do it justice). A really great place to stay - and different for us.
