I visited this ryokan for their seasonal kaiseki meal and was not disappointed. Excellent and timely service was provided by the young Vietnamese waitress as course after course followed. A menu in English was very useful to explain each dish. The food was beautifully presented and each morsel was delicious. Highly recommended.

We were staying in Nozawa Onsen so we went to Ryoken Sakaya for a Kaiseki meal and Onsen package. At around $75 AUD, I thought it was very good value. The meal consisted of many different small dishes, typical Japanese style, of cooked and uncooked foods. The food was beautifully presented, and tastes fantastic. Served with Sake, it was a great Japanese meal experience and no worries, there are tables and chairs, so no sitting on the tatami mats if you dont wish to. We followed dinner with a onsen at the Ryoken. This is a great natural onsen with indoor and outdoor baths and is a fantastic way to finish off the night after dinner. This is a recommended package for a night out. You do not have to be a guest at the Ryoken to use the onsen or to visit for a meal.

Stayed for 3 nights on a half board basis. We had a Japanese style room which was very large and added to the experience. The food was outstanding and the service excellent. Akita who served our food for 2 days was so patient and helpful with us, explaining what the food was, and how to eat it. She always had a lovely smile. We booked the private family bath 2 days running and can recommend trying this. The location is perfect in the centre of the town. It was out of ski season, so we had a lovely walk to Lake Hokuryuko, a heart shaped lake that is stunning. It’s about a 45 minute walk from the centre of town.

Stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. Only a short (5min) walk to and from the Chuo bus station (to go to/from Iiyama station where the bullet train from Tokyo stops). Bus trip only 25 minutes and approx 600yen/adult, 300yen/child. Hotel is a bit older but lovely and very traditional. Most rooms appeared to overlook the lovely courtyard (beautiful in winter) and Koi pond below. Staff very helpful. Be sure to book restaurants in advance (staff can do this for you) especially in peak season. About 10min walk uphil to Yu walk (long escalator) to Hikage slope. Nozowa onsen ski school is here, probably a good idea to email in advance to book lessons as it gets busy. The town is really pretty and easy to get around. The steamed buns were a must! So plenty to do if you aren't into skiing The hotel had its own onsen (and a public one nearby also) which was welcome after a day on the slopes! If you have young kids they have a family onsen also (just need to book). Also there is a laundry at the bottom of the hotel which was very helpful (meant less packing!). Rooms were spacious. We had one western style and one traditional. I really enjoyed the traditional room (beds are a bit firm but I prefer that myself). We had breakfast included (as part of a group) - was more like a ceremony! And a banquet on the last night with lots of traditional dishes - all yummy!

It’s a mere 5 mins walk from the bus terminal via Nozawa Bus Liner and another 7 mins walk to Nozawa Ski Resort. Though it’s located in Nozawa Onsen Village but some shops were closed when we were there. Very traditional onsen, loved the experience (though kids find the room a little too dim for them). Overall, it’s worth visiting.
