Okada Ryokan

Ryokan in Hirayu Onsen

Although not much English is spoken, the kind staff at this hulking ryokan downhill from the bus station provide a warm welcome. Large but dated rooms have private facilities and the common baths and rotemburo are excellent. Unlike many ryokan in the area, single travellers can sometimes get rates here without meals – but beware the slim pickings for nearby restaurants.
