Did not stay here but came to use the hot springs. The location was very far off though they have a shuttle bus. The hot springs seemed to be very popular as it was really crowded. But the facility was huge. One of the largest I've been too. They also have outdoor onsen pools which was a huge plus.

It's certainly not close the train station but worth the trip. They have a shuttle bus you can take which leaves almost every hour until 5pm. It's a little pricey but also includes a full five course meal and a wonderful breakfast. The hotel general areas have all been updated and are beautiful. The lobby is great and of course... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Shoho in Matsumoto. I had a corner room on the top floor, so was able to see a view over the whole city including the Minami Alps, these mountains are truly stunning. The Shoho is easy to access from central Matsumoto; just a 3/4 kilometre drive to the hotel. The staff are... More

This was a ryokan style hotel (no bedding out in the room during the day and they bring out the futon bed at night) with lovely public bath/onsen (hot pool). We are a family of 5 and they were able to cater us in one room (this is sometimes difficult in Japan) and the view from the room was really... More

The room we had was a traditional (non-western style) room, which was comfortable and spacious (and had... More
