Wafu No Yado MASUYA was absolutely amazing! Our first impressions were of lovely staff who were welcoming and very efficient with check in and helping us to our room. She even carried our bags even though we offered to lug them to our room ourselves! The room was well appointed, with our own hot spring tub. The heating had already been turned on for us and we were treated to a welcome of traditional Japanese sweets and hot green tea. The ryokan provides yukatas, socks and traditional slippers for wear around the room, the main guest areas and the restaurants. All amenities like toiletries were provided, even razors and hairbrushes! Of course, if you splurge on half board - then you are in for a treat! We enjoyed an 8 course dinner and a similar breakfast, all served in our own dining room with our own waiter. The food was exquisite, service impeccable and the experience outstanding. We absolutely enjoyed our experience and cannot recommend Masuya enough! Treat yourselves!

Cosy and well maintained. Good service by front office staff. Dinner and breakfast was reasonable but not up to expectation for the price.

I liked the onsens but there were a few missing titles in one of the onsens which can be rather dangerous.

An authentic experience

Very friendly and helpful staff. They do not speak much English but they managed to explain everything and get us the things we needed. Breakfast and dinner was served in a private dining room with my name on the door. Food was excellent. We also really enjoyed the hot spring baths in the hotel and wearing the yukata they provided for our walk down the onsen streets. They provide a free shuttle to the snow monkey park but you need to take the local bus back or walk. Overall we had a great time!

The property had separate dining rooms for each guest. Overall, the hotel seemed a bit tired looking and in need of updates.
