We just finished a 2 nights in this incredible Ryokan. The rooms are huge, beautiful, in a splendid Japanese style. Food is full of various taste. I enjoyed breakfast and dinner. The staff is very attentive, always smiling. And don't forget the to go in the outside onsen. In

Stayed at the Kanaguya ryokan in the small onsen town of Shibu Onsen from 24-26 December 2018. From Osaka we took a Nozumi Shinkansen to Nagoya, then hopped onto the Limited Express Shinona to Nagano, then onto a local train to Yudanaka, before finally taking a mini-van

My family and I had the pleasure of staying one night at Kanaguya this past weekend. Aside from being a “registered tangible cultural property” of Japan, you feel as if you’ve been spirited away at this ryokan that exudes nostalgia of a time long gone. Visitors can soak in a

"There are no elevators, so if stairs bother you, ask for a room on a lower level and/or close to the dining facilities."
"We were in Room 106 on the second floor. It was a traditional tatami mat room of good size for 2 people. One nice feature, there was an additional small room off the main room where luggage could be stored or laid out. There was a mini-bar/refrigerator and we had free Wi-Fi in-room. The room looked out onto a village street below. It takes a very long time for hot water to flow from the taps. We had a quiet night there. If you want more details about the rooms, it will help to have someone who speaks Japanese contact them with your questions."
"Cheapest sleep only rate room can has no own toilet (share facility). Book with Brekky and Dinner Package."
