Masuya Ryokan is the real thing, an old wooden Ryokan hotel that has survived the ages. It is not well-maintained though, some windows are missing, some floors are kind of iffy, and there are large hornet nests near the roofline. Glass panes rattle with the slightest breeze as there's no putty in them. No wi-fi or much of any other... More

This Meiji-era hotel is about a 20-minute taxi ride from Ueda station in Nagano. The hotel is old and has no central heating, so it's very cold in the common areas.
