With a stay at Hohoemino Kuyufu Tsuruya in Tendo, you'll be within a 5-minute walk of Tendo Onsen and Hiroshige Museum of Art. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: Some great interiors and the massage chairs in the hall were a bonus. Great food and they varied the meals. Had the Japanese room with tatami mats. Felt like a house ! Complete with private onsen.
Cons: Wish I stayed longer.
Pros: The best stay in our 10 days trip. Staff were very attentive. Service was impeccable. The rooms were nice, clean, and comfortable. Good public bath. Yamagata beef dinner was so good. Highly recommend.
Pros: Room, facility , food and staff. The best hotel ever!
Pros: - Friendly staffs . - Great Lobby room . - Delicius food.
Pros: Very traditional feel. Great beds and friendly yet highly professional staff, ready to answer all of your questions
Pros: Staffs provided excellent service, from front desk to dining room.
Cons: Non-air conditioned areas in room can be very cold during winter.
Pros: This place looks stunning with the internal Japanese garden, and has incredibly friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in a western style room, which had the most comfortable bed and doona I have ever used. The buffet breakfast was an incredible experience (Japanese style). The accommodation is 15 minutes walk from Tendo station although we easily organised a lift with the staff on arrival and departure. Ginzan onsen and yamadera are reasonable day trips away. Highly recommended.
Pros: Beautifully atmospheric room. Very comfortable and the lighting was very cosy. Traditional breakfast buffet was delicious!
Cons: There were only a couple of staff who spoke English, and none of which were at the breakfast, which could have been useful, as it all looked very interesting and I was uncertain about what to do, without being rude. Definitely not a dealbreaker and mostly my fault for not knowing more nihongo! The staff were very eager to help me all the same!
The lit gas lights of the hot spring district and the inn's Taisho Roman (cultural style of the early 1900s Taisho period) style architecture will amaze guests!! Unwind yourself from routine fatigue by letting us spoil you with our warm hospitality, delicious foods and therapeutic hot spring baths rich in beneficial effects. Please visit our cafe "Swallones" on the 1st floor and try the famous local sake or cocktails at night.
Pros: Dinner was super nice and good service.
Cons: The building was slightly old.
Pros: The place is beautiful indeed. The food is good.
Cons: The onsen was unexpectedly small. The sister hotel’s onsen is much larger and has more facilities. So just go there instead.
Pros: The best thing was undoubtedly the food. Traditional Japanese meals of high quality. Service in general was efficient and pleasant, although because of the many people eating at once, it could be difficult to find staff. Great plus is that you can use the rotemburo (outdoor springs) at their sister hotel (Ginzan-so), a 7-minute walk, just outside the main town. It’s modern with good amenities and a large outdoor bath that overlooks the forest - at this time of year, lovely autumn colors.
Cons: The inn is showing its age - stained carpets, unattractive bed spreads - really needs some renovation. The rooms are clean though. The onsen was good but on the small side and not especially beautiful. Staff was friendly and helpful, but several times I had to ring the bell to get their attention. The worst element by far was the shared bathrooms — worst I’ve encountered in 6 trips to Japan. The odor is simply horrendous.
Pros: The staffs were friendly and helpful. The 2 meals provided were excellent. The room is comfortable.
Cons: No english sign provided for the hotel name so it was a bit hard to find where it located. The staffs can not speak engish fluently so it was sometimes hard to communicate. No out door onzen.
Pros: The shared bathroom was very clean. The room was quite spacious and the scenery in ginzan onsen was really breathtaking both day and night. The food was delicious too!
Cons: The onsen looks worned out, but the good thing is that you can visit the one at ginzan-so for free if you're staying here and that kind of made up for it.
Pros: Front desk staff can speak English and nice. Other staff very kind. Good location.
Cons: no private shower room
Pros: Excellent service. Hotel is located in the central of Ginzan Onsen street. Thanks for the hospitality of front staff and everyone, we have a wonderful journey there. We are looking forward to meeting 古勢起屋別館 next time.
Cons: Though Hotel staff indicates that it's not an non-smoking room, we are surprised that there is no smell of smoke in the room in the beginning. It's obvious that hotel staff did the best to remove the smell of smoke. But in the after, we can smell cigarette smoke from somewhere, all night long. Maybe it's resulted from other guest next door. It's unpleasant. For public health and safety, maybe it's better to restrict all the guests not to smoking inside the hotel.
Pros: The meals that were included were incredible. I requested vegetarian and they accommodated. The presentation of the meals and rooms were exquisite. Rooms big and beautiful. Traditional Ryokan style done to perfection.
Cons: Pretty expensive and you don’t even get your own bathroom & have to bath on a different floor. Onsens were small. Rooms big, but noisy if there are kids staying next to you. (I was woke up several times) also this time of year most of Obanazawa was closed & under construction.
Pros: Located right in the middle of Ginzan; able to use the baths at Ginzansou; provided rubber boots, umbrellas and overcoat layer (handy for winter weather); food was delicious; free coffee on 1F
Cons: Paper thin walls and noisy neighbors; bathroom on 2F located right across from busy dining room
With a stay at Nonoka Hongokan in Higashine, you'll be within a 15-minute drive of Keiji Mashimo Memorial Museum and Tendo Onsen. This ryokan is 7.5 mi (12.1 km) from Mogami River Downstream Boat and 7.6 mi (12.2 km) from Tendo City Museum of Art.
With a stay at Ginzanso in Ginzan Onsen, you'll be 23.3 mi (37.4 km) from Naruko Onsen and 13.6 mi (21.9 km) from Akakura Onsen. This hotel is 16.4 mi (26.4 km) from Mogami River Downstream Boat and 22.8 mi (36.7 km) from Yumeria.
Pros: They have concern for children in terms of food for dinner and breakfast.
Cons: It’s not located at the center of Obanazawa. You have to walk about 10 minutes to get there.
Pros: Location and Nice View.
Pros: Impressive service, super clean room. Futon was very comfortable. Meals were elaborate and varied. Very tasty. Very impressed with Ms Morita who served us well, she's friendly and professional.
Pros: Very good meals, very spacious and nice room, great view,
Cons: The pillows were filled with bead-like things and were very uncomfortable,
Pros: A beautiful Ryokan. We had the rooms with the private onsens with amazing views of mountains. The food is absolutely amazing. Must have experience for anyone travelling to Japan
Pros: The onsen was really nice. We enjoyed both the dinner and breakfast very much. :)
Pros: Usually I stay in smaller-size ryokan accommodations but Ginzan-so was the only location with vacancies at Ginzan Onsen during my travel weekend, so I reluctantly booked there. What a pleasant surprise, then, to find that despite its relatively large size, Ginzan-so has an intimate atmosphere. Service was friendly and welcoming; the meals were delicious; the baths exceeded my expectations immensely; the free coffee in the lounge was a nice extra touch.
Cons: This is not really a complaint but a suggestion: I think more could be done to make the dining room feel more pleasant: perhaps a dimming if the lights, a greater separation between tables, etc. The food was fantastic but it felt a bit like we were eating in an upscale but windowless conference room.
Pros: Not cheap but you do get what you pay for i.e. fantastic room, great food and an authentic ryokan experience in a traditional and scenic spot.
Pros: Very good Japanese style hotel , Ryokan. Every has a nice view.
Cons: Water in public bath is not hot enough compare to every room that we used to visit
Pros: Dinner and breakfast was really yummy. The onsen was a unique experience with the “individual” spaces. The view was exceptional. They also provided shuttle service to town after dark.
Cons: No complains
With a stay at Comfort Hotel Tendo in Tendo, you'll be just steps from Tendo Onsen and Tendo Shogi Museum. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage. Limited parking is available onsite.
Pros: Very nice hotel in a great location from the train station and access to Yamadera. Great breakfast. We stayed here for 2 nights.
Cons: Snoring noise from the room next door was awful, same for the TV noise. Could not stay here again for this reason.
Pros: Super clean, well equipped and friendly hotel for a base in this part of Japan. Staff were brilliant helping me try to locate a mislaid jacket.
Cons: Everything was great
Pros: Located within <5 min walk from the Tendo JR station, equipped with free parking. Good staffs. Our room was roomy, having more than enough space for two: it was very clean, and we welcome the definitely non-smoking policy within the building. Good breakfast was served. Note: need prior reservation if you want to take shuttle service to the Yamagata airport.
Pros: The location is very convenient to local restaurants as well as the train station. The breakfast had lots to choose from and was good. The staff was friendly and answered all questions that we had about the area.
Cons: Overall the hotel was great for the price. However, you can tell that the hotel is very old. There were stains on the carpet in the elevator and you can see that the hotel is in need of some remodeling.
Pros: We stayed here for 5 nights as a jump off point to Mt Gassan, Fukushima, and Mt Zao. Very good breakfast! Room was spotless and I loved the night gowns they provided. High water pressure in the bathroom and they have lots of amenities free to use. Very helpful and friendly staff. :)
Cons: Pillows were so uncomfortable. We asked for 2 extra ones as they were flat like pancakes. They gladly gave us 2 extra ones but we kept on waking up in the middle of the night and had a stiff neck at the end. One of the front desk clerks was cold and unwelcoming. You will immediately feel this (especially if you don't understand the language) with their body language and because they are always friendly and respectful. I thought it was just me but I witnessed how he was with other guests versus how he spoke to us.
Pros: The staffs are helpful, breakfast simple but delicious.
Pros: Bed was comfortable.
Cons: Limited breakfast selections.
Pros: Free breakfast and coffee. Fresh and plentiful.
Cons: The pillows. Not sure whether it was buckwheat or Styrofoam but they were a bit thin and uncomfortable at times.

Pros: Good hotel with comfortable facilities, good breakfast.
Pros: Takinoyu locates in the center of Tendo city and provides excellent shuttle bus between Tendo JR Station and hotel. (I just make phone call to book the bus on the JR train, the bus wait you timely outside the station) It takes 3 miins by car and around 10 mins by walk from JR station to hotel. Around the hotel, there are lots of scenic spots to explore: Tendo National Park, Tendo Shoji Museum, Souvenir shops etc. The breakfast and dinner in Takinoyu are terrific with traditional Japanese style, fresh food, tasty flavor, furthermore the atmosphere of dinning environments are very impressive. The Onsen (hot spring bath) offers both indoor and outdoor facilities which let me deep experience the traditional culture as well as relax the body.

Pros: I liked the location of the hotel, relative to the nearest train station. It was manageable and within a 5-minute walking distance. The restaurants around the area were also of very good quality and we enjoyed our meal at a nearby Japanese restaurant.
Cons: The very low English-proficiency of the staff. Efforts and good intention only went so far, as in the end, I left the hotel slightly happy with how courteous the Japanese staff were, but terribly disappointed that such a big hotel chain did not ensure that its staff would be able to communicate well in English to non-Japanese tourists.
Pros: Nothing extraordinary, like in every Japanese hotel. Breakfast was tasty.
Cons: There was no internet connection.
Cons: The room is a bit too small for 2 person.
