Some drinks over the two nights stay at the Hiramatsu Sengokuhara.
98 Chave drinking perfectly now, smoky, savory, solid dark fruit, ripe and fully resolved tannins, pronounced acidity.
A.E. Dor #9 — a truly amazing Cognac, made in 1914, spent half a century in oak casks and bottled in 1964. Well integrated alcohol, smooth and elegant palate, perfect sensory experience.

Setting/surrounding area: 9/10 (mountain, lake, museums)
Activities: 8/10 (hiking, sightseeing, museums)
Rooms: 8/10
Onsen: 9/10 (private onsen, public onsen bookable for private use)
Other facilities: 8/10 (restaurant, spa, fitness center)
Food: 8/10
Wine/sake list: 9/10

Overall: 87/100

Pros: easy access from Tokyo; spacious, well appointed room with private semi-outdoor onsen; very good food and the best wine list I’ve seen so far in any onsen ryokan; great service
Cons: would have been nicer if the private onsen was on the balcony instead of inside the bathroom; western cuisine only (breakfast on the last day was a bit simple)
