Our stay at Sumiyosiya and Nozawa Onsen was the highlight of our trip in Japan. Everything about our stay in this ryokan was wonderful and felt genuinely authentic - far surpassing other ryokan we stayed in during our travels. We will definitely come back someday. The ryokan is conveniently located very close to the 'travelator' that takes you to the... More

Can't rate this place highly enough. Hiro and all staff are wonderful and the service was exceptional. Great advice and recommendations for eating and sightseeing. We were treated as honoured guests and we greatly appreciated every courtesy afforded us. Guests are encouraged to wear traditional Yukatas and it makes for a wonderful immersive escapist vacation. Breakfast each morning, and the... More

We wanted an authentic Japanese experience and we truly did staying here. Go for the Japanese breakfast, its different, yummy and... More

Fantastic friendly service and great cultural experience. Be prepared to change your slippers often, wear you Japanese robes around the hotel and bath with others au natural (not mixed). You will be asked if you want your bed put away each day (we forgot one day and it is a bit of a pain going over it). Try the Japanese... More

Family of 3 for skiing. The host Hiro and all staff were absolutely top notch, with most speaking a little English which helps greatly, as none of us had any Japanese. Ski and gear storage extremely easy just inside entrance. Parking right at the front door, and staff constantly kept clear any snow from and in the vicinity of the... More

A fantastic friendly ryokan. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Most have good English. The inn is only 5 minutes from the ski slopes and directly opposite a hot spring where the villagers cook corn and eggs. We all had an onsen every day in the beautiful baths.

Wow what an experience, sure I've been to more luxurious hotels before but nothing that has the service and cultural aspect that Sumiyosiya has. We went for our honeymoon, we were treated with tea and a gift to celebrate us bring newly weds. The in house onsen is a god send after a long day on the snow and apparently... More

We stayed for 10 nights at this beautiful ryokan. Hiro was a perfect host and nothing was too much trouble for him and his team. The rooms were large and certainly big enough for a family of four. While the futons took a little getting used to, they were very comfortable. The in house onsen was perfect after a day's... More

When my wife booked a hotel room with no beds and no bathroom I was a little surprised. I needn't have worried, staying at Sumiyosiya was a truly fabulous experience. The service is second to none anywhere I have stayed in the world...Hiro and his team are outstanding and nothing is too much trouble, right down to pro-actively making a... More
