Really loved the Ryokan Biyu No Yado. The staff was welcoming and friendly. Breakfast and dinner were both amazing each day. Views were out of this world and the onsen was super comfortable and relaxing. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a nice getaway while in Japan.

We traveled to Japan for 2 weeks and stayed many different hotels as we worked our way across Japan. Japan already has some of the most respectful and nicest people. However, the owner and his wife exceeded even those expectations. We came to see the Japanese snow monkey in Yudanaka. We got off the train and were immediately greeted by... More

To start, we were not staying here but happened to walk by and called in to have a drink at the bar. Two lovely young girls served us & stayed on talking and entertaining us with their enthusiasm & stories. Eventually we met their boss and in turn the lady owner. Have never been made to feel so welcome on... More

일본에서 진짜 일본의 멋과 맛을 짧은시간내에 즐기고 싶다면 이곳 나가노의 온센료칸 (온천 여관) "비유노야도" 를 적극 추천합니다. 나리타공항에서 나리타 익스프레스를타고 토쿄 에서 신칸센으로 나가노까지 한 세시간 남짓, 나와 남편은 조금 더 편한 그린석으로 기차표를 구입했더니 짐이 꽤 크고 많았는데도 넘 편했습니다.나가노역에 도착하면 호텔에서 친절한 여주인 "유키" 상이 픽업 나와 한 40분 경 아름다운 나가노 드라이브,(산세가 절경 입니다) 를 하면 경치좋은... More

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights while traveling in Japan a few days ago. Being that I am from America and wife is Korean, we wanted to experience a truly traditional Japanese onsen (bath/hot spring). We were referred to this Onsen from other travelers/friends and we were very impressed with the hotel, staff and proprietor. The... More

After traveling for over a month in Japan, we've experienced a variety of Ryokans. This is BY FAR the best one we have stayed at, and are extremely thankful for the wonderful staff. (especially Mikka). The Onsen has a beautiful view of the town, as well as nice washing stations to use. The food was amazing and made us feel... More

Stayed here as part of a tour group. Japanese Ryokan, traditional food and entertainment. Japanese style room was clean and comfortable, although the futon on the floor took a bit of getting used to! Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and came out to wave goodbye on our departure. Would recommend if you want a true Japanese experience.
