This ryokan was top notch, friendly and accommodating. The hot baths were great for detoxing from jet lag at 4am! I can't say enough good things about this Kai Matsumoto - pure indulgence! And the food was really beyond yummy.

This ryokan type of resort is so amazing. Just a nice mix of traditional bedding style (with tatami floor and futton) and modern comfortable equipments. I really enjoyed staying here. The hot baths are so calming and relaxing with serene decoration. There are 13 styles of indoor and outdoor hot baths. Since there are not so many rooms, the hot... More

There really is very little reason leave Kai Matsumoto during your stay but you'll have to because there are things to see in Matsumoto. That being said: The customer service is attentive but not intrusive, friendly but not contrived, and wonderfully amazingly helpful when it came to exploring Matsumoto. The accommodations are very comfortable. The hot spring spa rooms are... More
