The family and staff here went above and beyond for us during our 4 night stay, running us to and from the station, calling and checking snow lifts for us, and always being willing to have a friendly chat.

The rooms were very clean, and I had no issues with the space or facilities. Floor and bedding was a new experience for me (tatami mats and thin mattresses) but after a day of skiing we had... More

Just finished 5 nights stay at the family-run Maruni Ryokan with 3 friends and couldn't fault it in any way. Started well with us getting collected from the bus station / information centre upon arrival on our Nagano Snow Shuttle from Narita Airport (credit to that company too for them contacting Maruni to advise them of our arrival) and our...
