First of all, Kaori, the owner happens to be one of the most Nicest and Sincerest person I have ever met that is running a hotel. The service happens to be one of the best I have ever had, especially since they are so personable with you. We took the morning breakfast option and every morning the food was outstanding. I have never been to a place where I felt at home. One of us was sick and needed a ride to the local market and again, they assisted. I have traveled many places in the world but I have to say this place is my top 2 place to stay. Japanese style rooms that has Futon beds. What was amazing was that they have their own onsen in the hotel. Ample of towels and robest always ready in the lobby, A locker room to put your snowboard/ski stuff with heaters. You can also arrange in house Massage but their are many places near by as well. About 15 minute walk to the Happa-one Gondola but a shuttle near by can take you their in 10. The Happo Bus terminal that can take to you to Nagano Station (Main Bus/Train Hub) is within 10 minute walk, as well. I would grade this place a 15 out of 1 to 10. I would highly recommend, especially for the price you get.. Kaori, Murayama, and the whole staff of Marukita, Thank you much for the amazing experience!
