(English) Motoyu Mountain Villa
Motoyu Mountain Villa has onsen (hot springs) facilities, which is rare within the Oze National Park. Hot water that has flowed up to the ground surface is heated further and used for the onsen. It is an accommodation located nearest, and accordingly, best for a visit to the Sanjo-no-Taki (falls), which is popular as one of the largest falls in Japan. It is advisable to leave your heavy luggage at the accommodation, as the path to the waterfalls is rugged and challenging. The meals are mainly washoku (Japanese cuisine) and the guest rooms are Japanese-style. Reservation for a private room can be made for two guests or more. You may request a bento (packed meal) for lunch at the time of check in.
