Perfectly located very close to the main attraction. Service is very good and also foreigners will feel comfortable. Don't worry about your car because they have a valet parking service. Room was big and very nice, same was the food. Hot Spring was OK but nothing special. Considering the location, season and hotel standard not overpriced but pricey.

Kusatsu Onsen (Hot Spring) has a wide variety of places to stay, but if you want to treat yourself to one of the great ryokan in town, you can't do much better than the Naraya. Located literally 1 minute from the Yubatake, "hot water cooling field", in the center of town, you are near everything, but away from the noise...

Kusatsu, like Arima, is a hill area clustered with many onsen hotels. It is always difficult to pick a hotel in area of this kind. This time, I picked Naraya because its long history looked attractive to me. One of the staff members was able to speak fluent English, we had no problem when we checked in. The hotel is...

Stayed there for a night last week. The room and the onsen are decent, the food so-so (as said in other reviews), but all the same I love the place as the staff there are great. You can feel that they really care- if you enjoy yourself there, if you need any help, or if the yukata you are wearing...

Located about 3hrs train-ride from Tokyo, Kusatsu is one of my favorite onsen spots in Japan. Naraya has opened it's door for nearly 140 years. It was my second stay there. My first trip was back in 2008 or 2009. The only difference and complaints were food and service. It was way better first time. This year, the quality of...

Naraya is a pleasant and comfortable ryokan. The staff are all warm, polite and hospitable and the food is of good quality, with just the right quantity. The onsen area is small but sufficient. The price is reasonable and the location is very close to the famous yubatake. The gift shop has a wide range of omiyage (souvenirs including food...

Naraya is located conveniently close to the Yubatake, the centre of Kusatsu Onsen town. From here, you can pretty much walk to most of the attractions around the town. This is especially useful after dinner, when you have changed to your yukata and do not have to rely on other forms of transportation to visit the lighted Yubatake. On arriving...

Our ryokan experience was everything we had hoped for. The room was on the top floor of the ryokan and looked out over the steps up to the temple. Tatami mats, an eating area and traditional dining table complete with under table heating still left plenty of free area in the very spacious room. Non smoking rooms are available. Bedding...

After our trip to the Kurokawa Onsen the year before, my six-year-old was completely hooked on the onsen experience. With the exception of Disneyland, she clamored for another bathing trip all last year. My wife and I happily obliged by going to Kusatsu over the New Year. We started our trip with an early ride to Karuizawa via Shinkansen. Though...
