The staff are very welcoming starting from the complimentary pick up from the train station to sending us off upon check out. Breakfast is one of the better ryokan breakfasts we have had during our visit in Japan. There is a highly recommended ramen shop which we visited nearby and make sure to ask for directions. The futons are clean... More

Having stayed at a few hotels in Japan, we decided to try the Ryokan experience on our visit to Matsumoto...and based on the reviews on Trip Advisor, Seifuso came to be our choice..... Unfortunately we do not share the findings of previous guests...maybe because we were given a room ( small) in the annexe, which compared to the main house... More

Our family of four (parents and two sons, 15 and 11) spent two nights in the Japanese style quadruple room. We really enjoyed our stay - the room was comfortable, the recommendations of the hosts were excellent (their hand-drawn maps of the immediate area and of Matsumoto were very helpful), the onsen style bath (one for men and one for...

We stayed at this Ryokan with a family of four and had the large room in the annex with a toilet. We were very lucky, as we had the whole annex to ourselves and had a very good sleep and a wonderful Japanese breakfast. The Annex and main house are clean and quiet. Matsumoto is a lovely city with a... More

We stayed for 3 nights with a family with 3 teenagers. We felt very welcome, and were taken care off in an exceptional way. We liked the traditional elements in the ryokan, including the onsen. The recommendations for restaurants were very to the point for what we were looking for. we used the free bikes and that was very convenient,... More

Excellent Japanese style breakfast. The tea ceremony is worth doing, especially if you haven't learned before. Everyone has been very friendly and provided a good idea of things to do in the city and directions. They also provide bikes which you may use for free which is quite useful.

Stayed here in January 2015 with my husband on the way to ski in Hakuba. We arrived quite late after a few delays on the trains occasioned by a serious accident that saw the connection from Nagano totally cancelled. That was a test of ingenuity to get to Matsumoto for sure, but that's a story for another day. Despite late... More

The family that runs the place are friendly and very helpful. the room is spacious and clean, breakfast is nice, toilet / shower area is spotlessly clean. A... More

You've found the place to stay in Matsumoto. We couldn't have asked for a more welcoming reception, a more comfortable room, a better Japanese breakfast or nicer and more helpful hosts. We were truly made to feel part of the family, even though we only stayed for one night. The lift from the train station was very much appreciated and... More
