Oshi Ryokan is located high up in the mountains in the town of Togakushi, famed for its soba, shrines and legend of ninja. We went, however, in the winter where many attractions were closed and the main thing to do, apparently, is ski. We weren't skiers however, so we spent much of our time visiting shrines, trying our luck with... More

This was the first time we've ever stayed in a ryokan, but we trusted the good reviews and went for it. It was not disappointing. The owners Mr Oshi (a Shinto priest!) and Mrs Oshi are very welcoming, and are willing to suggest places to go in Togakushi. The breakfast was amazing, so we also tried dinner - it's a... More

My boyfriend and I could only fit one night of our itinerary here in Nagano, but we are so glad we chose this ryokan to spend it! The couple who run this traditional Japanese inn are lovely, and very eager to help make the most of your time with them. If like us, you don't rent a car, you can... More

This summer my wife and I spent 3 nights at Oshi Ryokan, in the mountains near Nagano. Mr Oshi and his wife are the best hosts you can wish for! They did everything to make us feel at home and enjoy our stay with them. The Japanese style room was spacious, clean and beautifully made, with tatami mats on the... More

We very much enjoyed our stay here, the host was very friendly, the food delicious and there was plenty of it, and the room we stayed in was clean, traditional and the perfect size for our family. It was fun to imagine all the people and history this building has seen. We stayed with our three small children. All under... More

They open in Spring (end of April) but i dont see what that has to do with the Ryokan. This place is great! Beautiful scenery and right at the beginning of the Shrine trail that has sone of... More

I stayed at oshi ryokan for 3 nights in the winter season. I specifically chose togakushi area to stay in for all the ninja related activities and things to see but on arrival I was informed they had all closed down, the internet and the pamphlets still promoted them as open though which is deceiving. I was so disappointed as... More

Breath-taking scenery around the ryokan. Our two-night stay included dinner, Mr Oshi and his wife were so helpful and hospitable, providing us plenty of options and first-hand information. Knowing my son was so keen on trying out skiing, he made it possible through his contact and resources. Moreover, he took my son to the ski resort early in the morning... More
