The quintessential ryokan. Three restaurants: oraganizn French, moden Japanese and kaiseki. Multiple baths, including one for men and women during the day. Location in the mountains a 20 minute ride from Matsumoto. Try each of the restaurants: each has specialties. Western and Japanese breakfasts are available. Room was supremely comfortable with in-room jacuzzi. If you can, get the private onsen... More

We had a blissful stay at this wonderful place, and although we arrived jet-lagged and exhausted we left feeling totally rejuvenated. There is no detail unconsidered by the warm and friendly hosts to make the stay as comfortable as possible for guests. From the fresh yukata and scented tabi provided daily, through to twinkling candles and midnight snacks left in... More

If you're going to stay in only one ryokan (traditional inn) in Japan, Myojinkan is the one to go to. It's up in the mountains, a short distance from the downtown area of Matsumoto city. There is beautiful scenery visible out of every window. Throughout the building are lovely original paintings of flowers and other natural scenes by a high-class... More

Easily the best Ryokan of our trip. Superb rooms with excellent facilities - standing onsen infinity pool open to the moon was memorably relaxing. Together with fantastic food - including special menu for our "begetarian" and access to the club lounge - this is worth a detour - but you do not need to! Matsumoto Castle is a must see... More

We stayed at myojinkan for three nights and had a chance to try out all three restaurants and their different styles of cuisine . Everything was equally delicious although members of the group differed in deciding which they liked best. The room we had (425) was big and well lit, and clean with a view of the waterfall. I was...

We stayed for one night at Myojinkan to break up our drive from Hakone to Takayama and were so, so pleased we did. Our time spent here was perfect: the moment we arrived we were greeted by the doorman who whisked our baggage into the hotel and valet parked our car, and then seamlessly checked in and made to feel...

We arrived here in the middle of the summer heat. It was the first time in a traditional ryokan with the whole family (two teenagers aged 13 and 17) and we were quite successful in getting the whole family to enjoy the baths. We were assigned a hostess who spoke excellent English (I had exchanged emails beforehand, which helped a... More

One of my bucket list items is to visit a true-blue onsen ryokan, and we are thankful our tour agency picked this for us. Perched on top of a snowy mountain in the heart of winter at 500m above the castle town of Matsumoto, Myiojinkan presented us an unforgettable mountain top experience. We took a 2-hour express train from Tokyo... More

This was the second time we returned to Myojinkan. Last time when we were here, we cancelled all our outside schedule because the ryokan was so comfortable and we decided to stroll around the ryokan and bathed instead. So, this time we stayed for three nights so that there was a day for relaxing in the ryokan and another day... More
