I have visited this Ryokan for more than 5 times as my first experience there was totally beyond my experience and eventually brought me back again and again. Great experience From the design of Ryokan speaks the combination of old Japanese Ryokan history and evolution of new development. Around the cozy lobby, you see many little surprises from their decoration,... More

Uematsuya is not the nicest ryokan out there; the halls feel more like dorm halls, and the rooms are quiet and have nice views but are not well-appointed. Acceptable, but not great. However, the food is fantastic. Better than the food at many ryokans I've paid ¥20k+ for. They claim they are regularly featured in travel guides specializing in food,... More

Good rustic onsen, with public onsens around..good for walking around with many temples to explore.. Lives up to its name as Kamakura of Shinshu.. Joined a local tour to see flowers which included a tour of the outer lying temples.. Really great value.. Staff spoke English and gave very good information about the town.. Meals were good value, had a... More

We are unable to find any other hotel in Nagano during my last visit, and this is the only one that we can find. It's about 1 hour drive to Nagano, and the hotel surrounding is very quiet. There are only a few small restaurants and only one convenient store but they close early. If you are planning for a... More

Service at this roykan is great but the food is so-so and the onsens are a bit small. Bessho Onsen is rustic, with a couple of old shrines and old world public baths. I would suggest a day visit rather than a stay.

This hotel is very accommodating to the demanding traveler. The customer service excels all expectations; the food is beyond what I have experienced anywhere in Japan; the hot springs are not crowded and very clean; the rooms are very quiet, some with beautiful views. Highly recommended.
