    A fabulous old ryokan with the best hosts ever. Everything is traditional Japan. If you're looking for modern, this is the wrong place. It is authenic. On site private onsen was a bonus (and there is no other shower). We got picked up and dropped off from the train station and monkey park as part of the service by the super frei dly staff. Highly recomend.

    If you’re just going for 1 night to see the snow monkeys, this is a perfect ryokan. It was a very reasonable price, and included transportation to and from the hotel and to and from the snow monkey park, which saved so much fuss and planning! The actual hotel, well, it’s a bit old and a lot rustic. Shared bathrooms, and the onsen could use a scrub ( maybe you just don’t do that? What do I know). Great value, incredibly sweet hosts.

    Authentic stay with wonderful hosts

    We came here to experience the Onsen town and the famous monkey park. Our hosts were fantastic and could not have been more helpful. They collected us from the train station and dropped us to and from the monkey park. The friendliness and warmth of the staff of the ryokan made the stay that little bit more special. The building itself is older but feels very authentic as a result and the presence of a private onsen was great at the end of a long day. Would reccomend staying here to anyone looking for a stay with genuinely lovely people in a wonderful setting. Only regret is that we only stayed the one night and didn't avail of the breakfast.

    Quintessential Japanese Hospitality

    The owners are so nice!!! Sometimes you can forget how much difference it makes to be greeted and welcomed into what is essentially a home instead of a hotel. From the moment you arrive you will be met with the biggest smiles and kindest hearts. I travel ALOT! And have met some great people and owners, and still this one surprised me. We came to the area to go to the monkey forest and to top it all off - they will literally offer to drive you there which was so nice of them! This was my first Ryokan. With all the options you have when booking I highly suggest giving this one a try versus another boring hotel you can book anywhere. It exemplifies quintessential Japanese hospitality!
