The lodge is right in the centre of Nozawaonsen and is about 10 minutes walk from the main ski lift. The room we stayed in was a western style room which was a good size and had an ensuite toilet. There are basins for washing at the end of the corridor. The breakfast is good with a choice between Japanese... More

We were keen to have a traditional ryokan experience during our stay at Nozawa Onsen, which we certainly achieved staying at the Matsuya. The hotel is run by an exceptionally friendly and lovely family, who welcome you at your arrival, and get you settled in the tatami rooms. The decor is dated and very 80s, but very clean and functional.... More

Very friendly and helpful family-run place, they helped find accommodation nearby when they closed for a holiday and even offered to carry my... More

Loved our stay at this lodge. the family was friendly, warm and welcoming. The onsen was clean and well kept. Breakfasts were a family affair with all the family heads down in the kitchen ensuring it was prepared with a loving touch, carefully coordinated for small table dining amongst guests who spoke the same language! I was sick in bed... More

What a lovely lodge run by a lovely family. My partner and I arrived late in the evening cold and tired. Mika (not sure I spelt that correctly) welcomed us into her warm lodge and gave us a quick tour before settling us into our room and importantly showing us how to use the reverse cycle air conditioner. It's very... More

we had 6 nights at the lodge matsuya and from entering the building knew we had made the right choice. We had western rooms and although small were clean and fresh towels delivered daily. Breakfast was fresh and very well presented and set us up for our long days of skiing. The bathing room was very clean as was all... More

There are two types of rooms at Matsuya Lodge: Western-style and Japanese rooms. The Western rooms are tiny, with beds, very little room for luggage and a toilet in the room. Still good enough if you are just looking for a place to crash overnight after a full day of skiing. The Japanese rooms are much larger, with futons on... More

Booking last minute over the Fire Festival wasn't such a great idea, but we certainly did well booking a room at Lodge Matsuya! We opted for a Western Room (two single beds, and our own toilet) but no shower / bath. Instead we decided the hotel Onsen would suffice. (as well as all the other public Onsens Nozawa is famous...

This lodge is family owned and it's very cleaned and cosy environment. We had the western twin room and there is a toilet in the room but the room size is way too small for luggage of skiers. When you sit in the toilet, you literally have problem closing the door. The bed is very comfortable and there is no... More
