“typical Japanese style inn - very kind hosts”
Reviewed January 24, 2011

Sometimes I read reviews of Westerners that complain about Japanese Inns being cold in winter, using a gas/kerosene heater, there being no sound insulation between rooms etc. But this is just the way traditional Japanese houses are made, and this place is no exception. If you dislike this, a ryokan/minshuku is just not for you.
This place is good in its category and has nice hot spring bathing facilities (plus you can use the ones around the village). The hosts are extremely kind and helpful and really went out of their way for us (no English spoken, though).
The location is good and there is easy access to the snow monkey park.
