Kinugawa Onsen Stay – Asaya Hotel

Kinugawa Onsen Stay
We were not too adventurous yet with a new baby for our trip so we decided to head out for a 2D1N onsen trip about 1.5 hours away from Sushi’s hometown. We went on a weekday so the train was relatively sparse and finally digging into an eki-ben. Been a long time for me 🙂

Kinugawa Onsen (鬼怒川温泉) is a popular hot spring resort town along the Kinugawa River in Tochigi Prefecture. The town is centered around the large hotel ryokan lining the riverbank, and offers many amusements such as the Tobu World Square and Nikko Edomura theme parks in addition to its hot spring baths. – Japan Guide

Bought our ticket in advance as we missed the shuttle bus to our hotel and the next bus was 20 minutes later.

Lots of activities and rest area for this hotel but too bad, I had a baby tagging along else I would definitely want to explore…

We made the reservation for a room catered for babies and there was a diaper disposal bin included too. We can also request for sterilizing equipment, emergency diapers, bumbo and most amenities needed for a baby. Additional charges is needed if you want a baby futon but we decided to co-sleep and there was no charges.

I never use the bathroom when I stay in the onsen but this time we have one user – Baby M.
