Took us a bit to find but was completely worth it. The ryokan is located just a 5 mins walk up the entrance of the park that leads the snow monkeys. Coming here was the highlight of our trip and felt like a retreat from the rush and fuss of Japan. The ryokan feels like it comes from the past... More

I can't say enough good things about the staff and the accommodations. We spent two nights during our honeymoon and were blown away by the experience. The staff made us feel extremely welcome and comfortable during our first couple days in Japan. We had read up on some of the customs at ryokans, which helped, but it was really the... More

This beautiful ryokan is located within walking distance of the snow monkeys. Our large, traditional room had tatami mats and a cypress hot spring bath. The dinner was amazing with finely crafted dishes made from local fish, meat and produce. The service impeccable and friendly. Breakfast was a feast as well. The setting and service is a calming work of... More

We stayed here in november for 3 nights, with our 9-year old girl. Totally loved the stay, especially the private onsen in the bathroom. Location is perfect, walking distance to the Jigokudani snow monkeys. Highly recommended. Food was to die for. Service was great.

We stayed two nights at this lovely ryokan and were very happy with our choice. Service was excellent with really friendly English speaking staff. We opted for half board, so it came with daily breakfast and dinner, both which were beautifully served and delicious! Dinner every night was a wonderful experience. We had shabu-shabu one night and sukiyaki another. Everything... More

We stayed for one night in the 'kyorai' room. The booking process (directly with the ryokan by email) was easy and the room was easily able to accommodate our family of 5. We provided train details and were met at the station - the helpful staff were also able to advise us on the best times for our return journey... More

It is hard to describe the perfection of this place! Great food, service, location, etc! They had a van to and from the train station that was very helpful. A short walk to the snow monkeys and town (which had a neat brewery!)
