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 (outdoor baths) are excellent. Single travellers can sometimes get rates here without meals – but beware the slim pickings in terms of nearby restaurants.
