This ryokan, traditional Japanese hotel, is amazing. It is nestled high up in the mountains near Lake Tawazako but surprisingly easy to get to. You have access to three private hot springs so if your nervous about public nudity this is perfect. One of them is outdoors and is probably the most romantic experience I've ever had. It made my...

If you are looking for an action or party holiday then this place is not you. We stayed here for three nights at the end of a two week Japan trip, having spent the previous week skiing. The accomodation is secluded and traditional Japanese, and is one of the better Ryokans we've stayed in. Yamanoyado offers only small Onsen facilities... More

The rooms are spacious and airy, with good bathrooms and comfortable seating areas. The staff is just fantastic, always willing to go the extra mile to please! The food, served Irori style, and featuring... More

This hotel and Tsuru no yu onsen is a Japanese styled once-in-a-life time experience. Both dinner and breakfast are very tasty and wonderful with a old-styled fireplace (Irori) in front of you. While the hotel facility might not be as nice as it usually be for hotel this price, this unique experience is definitely worth it. There is no cell... More
