Booking was easy through Agoda for the standard rooms, but if you want to upgrade to a suite, you have to check the ryokan's website and email its GM, Tomoko, who speaks good English and is very friendly and accommodating.

Location is a great base to explore the ski resorts, with the free shuttle bus stop right in front of the hotel. Also walking distance... More
