“Excellent ryokan”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

Yatsusan is an excellent ryokan in the very pleasant town of Furukawa. The ryokan is located beside the river which runs through town and is very convenient to the main sights. We were warmly welcomed. Our spacious and comfortable tatami room also had a sitting area with western armchairs looking out across the river to a temple and the distant snow covered mountains. The staff were very kind and caring and the food excellent, served in our own tatami room in the restaurant area after a complimentary and very tasty aperitif. The baths were small but also of a high quality. Our stay was very pleasant and this ryokan is highly recommended for a traditional Japanese experience in an authentic atmosphere.

Reviewed September 21, 2011

We stayed only one night, regrettably. Upon arrival, we were received warmly into a room where we were offered freshly brewed green tea and a Japanese snack. Our room was a typical Japanese tatami mat room (where they would lay out the futon mattresses for the night). Looking outside our window, we could see the river and swaying trees. The entire hotel decor is very authentic and charming. The staff are dressed in olden-style Japanese attire so the whole place makes you feel like you have stepped back a few centuries. There is a lovely outdoor onsen where we could enjoy the piped hot spring waters. We felt at home and comfortable as we moved around in our yukatas (lounge robes) and bare feet along the tatami mat corridors. The kaiseki (Japanese set) meals that were served were delicious, well-prepared and included in the price of the stay.
