“Everything you want for a ryokan experience in Japam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012 via mobile

We stayed at this cozy, clean and comfy inn in January 2012 with the entire family (2 kids & 3 adults). We stayed in a large tatami room split in two sections on the 3rd floor with great views of the Japan alps. The onsen is a pure traditional hot spring. The onsen at Sakamotonoyu is the only onsen in the area that is not diluted with hot water or reheated giving you a true onsen experience which is hard to find in Japan these days. The husband and wife running the ryokan are extremely friendly and accommodating and can also speak good English to recommend sites around town. The dinner was exceptional which was served in a private tatami room on the 1st floor; 7 courses of seasonal dishes presented beautifully and tasted great!

Highly recommend this place and I've stayed at quit a few ryokans in Japan and this place certainly ranks as one of the best.

It's really confortable place to stay. Excellent service, wonderful Japanse meals and great hot springs. Very relaxing time. And also you can enjoy hiking and cycling.

This was my second visit to Sakamotonoyu. Consistantly welcoming, family atmosphere with great food and ability to accommodate large groups like pros! Centrally located above the Asama Onsen area, many of the room views overlook the village and to the alps. Enjoyed my stay and look forward to coming back.

Room Tip: If you are booking a room for the Utsukushigahara race, BOOK EARLY! This is a great location for the...

We stay there every year for the Tour de Utsukushigahara, a hill-climb bike race attracting several thousand competitors. Sakamotonoyu has:

-Fantastic "kakenagashi" onsen baths
-Great service
-Nice views
-Very clean and peaceful, at the foot of the Utsukushigahara mountain range (2000m), but only 15 minutes from Matsumoto station and castle.

Room Tip: West facing=View of Alps; East facing=Forest view
