This hotel is amazing! The manager, an elderly man who looks 10 years younger than his age, does almost everything in the hotel together with a younger woman who assists him.

The manager can speak English and he does it with a very good accent but he does take a while to compose his sentences (I would recommend learning some Japanese because it greatly improves the experience). He is amazingly helpful, will give you tips on Kusatsu and he explains the courses in the meals thoroughly.

The food, both dinner and breakfast were Michelin-quality - immaculate and incredibly tasty. The greatest dish in the course for me would be the broiled Joshu beef. It was immensely beefy and fatty. I took small bites of the beef and received an explosion of flavour each time.

The elderly man and the woman are incredibly warm. They will make you feel at home in the ryokan. They will provide a shuttle for you if you need to go town. Their onsen and rooms are also very clean...

I found this hotel at Kasetsu by chance. When I was doing the research on the internet, I was already imperssed with the meal menu it offers. Though a night stay with two meals at 24,000 yen (2 person) is expensive (and if you choose the beef menu, it's 28,000 yen), I decided to give it a try... and I've never regretted my stay there!

The hotel staff picked us up at Kasetsu Bus Terminal when we arrived at 3.15pm. When we arrived at the hotel, we were briefed by a lady staff who was very helpful and poilte. She tried her very best to explain to us how we could go around taking bus for sight-seeing. She even resorted to drawing to make sure that we fully understood her.

I'm gald I chose to have the meals included. Our meals were served in a private room and every dish is superbly done especially the Wagyu (Japanese Beef). The staff also took the trouble to explain what sauce to go with each dish.

The room is spacious and it comes with a massage chair that I...

The other day, thank you so much for me to stay Shakunage. Did you enjoy the Kusatsu and Japan? We will not be able to speak English, I think you it was inconvenient. There are a lot of great places in Japan. Please come to Japan come again. Thank you very much. More
