Nothing was a problem for Keiko and Tomomi - from pick ups and drop offs, luggage logistics and even sorting out our return travel timetable for the Shinkansen back to Tokyo. Dinner was a twelve course degustation delight and the breakfast was not far short of that number. We loved the place - the onsen bathing experiences were a hoot... More

Had one night stay in Matsuya, and was very lucky to get a room there in the last minute. The staff there is very friendly and helpful, location is great, create a very unique homey feeling. had only breakfast there - but it was very nice too. I do not write reviews usually - but I did this time as... More

Traditional full-board ryokan accommodation often comes with a hefty price tag, but this establishment offers a ryokan experience at a reasonable price. Most western travellers come to Yudanaka to see the famous snow monkeys, and this place operates as a good base for people visiting for that purpose. The operators will transfer you to and from the station, and also... More

I stayed here one night with my friend and the service was great, the amenities were top notch and really they couldn't have done anything to make it more perfect! The snow was falling as we visited the onsen across the street, it was easy to get to the monkey park and they even arranged for us to meet our... More

This is a great onsen hotel that is only a two hour bullet train ride out of Tokyo. We stayed here for three nights and it was definitely our favourite location in Japan. It is cosy, traditional and located in a gorgeous, quiet town. The hosts are incredible - they pick you up from the station if needed, drive you... More

Senshinkan Matsuya was an experience we'll never forget. The hosts were incredibly welcoming and helpful. We were shown to our comfortable room on the second floor, and shown how to wrap our yukatas. Then we made our way to the onsen in the basement, which was lovely, not busy, and amazingly hot. Afterward we went back to our room to... More

Definitely no regrets staying here - Keiko and her staff we extremely helpful and accommodating. The room was fantastic, warm and comfortable and the whole place had exactly that traditional Japanese old timber ryokan feel that you are looking for - if that's what you are looking for! Shibu Onsen did not disappoint and a beautiful quiet little town nestled... More

The owner was very friendly and even offers transport to/from the train station. It is located right on the onsen St and a reasonable walk from the Monkey park. Rooms are simple but clean. Bathing facilities are excellent and you can visit all the public bath-houses nearby for free as well. For a ryokan the price was very reasonable Highly... More

This is a great place to stay in a traditional Japanese style (small room with futons for sleeping). It is clean and well maintained -- but most of all, the hosts are fantastic. We were picked up at the train station, shepherded to the famed monkey park (worth seeing BTW), and treated extremely well during the stay. A BIG PLUS... More

We spend a great night in Matsuya Ryokan: the building is very traditional and the dinner has been fabulous. The guesthouse has been really friendly with us: they have given as a gift a photo of us in traditional kimono and helped us for every need. We will always remember the kindness of Monoko and of her family!
