I had an amazing Japanese breakfast here. This ryokan also has great indoor and outdoor onsen (hot spring tub). if you're in favor of walking, this ryokan is located around 10 minutes from the station. Make sure you check the map, as it's easy to miss. The room is clean and tidy, with traditional tatami. Great traditional Japanese experience!

We stayed here for two nights in April 2014. We chose the place because of the English website and the cute youtube video. Upon arriving at the hotel we realized that the photos posted on the website were a lot nicer then the actual location itself. We stayed in a standard room with tatami mats. The owner of the hotel...

I stayed here for 1 night on late march. I chose this ryokan because they accept single traveler and has an english booking site. The price is reasonable and the place is about 15 minutes away from the yubatake. Plenty of slopes along the way so please take note when traveling with elderly people. The ryokan was easy to find...

The Japanese and English reviews for this ryokan differ. The Japanese tend to be less impressed than the foreigners, perhaps they have had more experience and expect more for this kind of price. Good points: 1. Excellent food - do NOT miss the evening meal - very traditional charcoal grill on each table and almost too much to eat. 2.... More

We went in the end of October, a good time to see the red leaves. We were able to reserve the private baths without any conflicts. The room was comfortable, and the breakfast and dinner was pretty good. Good customer service.

So sorry that I just remember that I did not write my review for my stay on 20 Feb 2013 in Kiyoshigekan. A one night stay in Kiyoshigekan is really good experience but regret that we went there in mid Feb which is really too cold for us (-11 degree). The location is a bit too far for us during... More

We enjoyed our stay in Kusatsu. The Ryokan was a little tricky to find at first and was a short 10 minute walk into town. The separate baths for ladies and gents were excellent with a lovely outside tub as well. (sulphur was the first thing I smelt in the morning).The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Two of us stayed 3 nights in mid April. Location is not in the town centre but can be reached by foot. Pick up service was not included but the owner was very kind to pick us from the Bus Terminal and as our departure was early in the morning he also drove us to the Bus Terminal. We find... More

well worth the trip out to the mountains of Gunma prefecture. Kusatsu is a beatiful onsen town with a lot to offer; yumomi dances, shrines, temples, the hot water field, eating, shopping, skiing etc. Kiyoshigekan is, in my opinion, the best Ryokan in the area. It's a little older and less lavish than some establishments, but you can't beat the... More

The location is bit too far from the town center compare to those with similar price level. The food arrange by the ryokan is decent but don't expect much, it's quite plain not fit to a strong taste preference of mine. Bath place is good though, especially they provide private area.
