A friend and I stayed here for 5 nights and I would have to say it was the most memorable experience from my holiday in Japan. It’s a great location not too far from the train station and best of all we had no trouble finding things to do in and around the area. The guest house is tastefully decorated, clean and secure and most importantly has great atmosphere. There are some great little restaurants and bars around the place and since the guest house is relatively new, the locals haven’t seen too many tourists before which makes the area unique and very special.

Room tip: I stayed in a mixed dorm and it was fine.

I traveled many places and this was absolutely my favourite -so much warmth and history in one place! All I imagined about Japan was at Kura- ! truly enjoyed every minute here.
This is also the place to spend time and unwind---after exploring the many sights around! Such nice evenings-wont forget!Marina ,soul of the house, helped with travel plans and showing me many sights in Suzaka, also nearby where i got my first Yukata in 160year old kimono shop ! half hour later I was in the world of Hina dolls which I also much enjoyed!
Guesthouse Kura is truly a little japanese gem whom any traveller should visit!

Where to start? I showed up and was greeted with a cup of tea and those famous Nagano apples. It's one of those places where they draw you their own map, not some pre-made tourist map. I had an incredible Japanese dining experience at a nearby recommended Soba place, plus they have a sake tasting bar down the street. They made every day trip sooooo easy, giving you train schedules, passes to buy, suggestions, etc. Obviously, go see the snow monkeys! They drove me to Onsens (two!) and every night I had a hot water bottle waiting for me in bed (makes sleeping so much warmer and better). As far as the place, it's spotless, and it's all traditional tatami, which was an incredible, incredible experience. Even their lockers are cool, old fashioned lockers. I would stake my reputation on this place. They're brand new, so that's why there are no reviews, but I have been traveling or six months and this was the cherry on top. You can't go wrong as far as guesthouses in Japan. But with KURA, you can't do better.

Room tip: Tatami! all the rooms are amazing
