Mr Yumoto took care of us and made sure we got to our locations on time. I am hoping I will be able to come back with my wife in the future. Spent two days there. Had great sushi (twice) down the road by Mr Yumoto recommendations. Also went to the sake museum up the road and tasted a lot of sake. Took some great photos at the Monkey park... www.flickr.com/johnessl

The staff were superb and really helpful, i don't think I have stayed at a place where the staff have been as helpful. Really made you feel special


Only had a brief one night stay but Mr Yomoto made us feel so welcome. Walking boots provided for the snow park. So kind and helpful driving us to/from the snow park.

This ryokan is so quaint! The people working there are mostly seniors but they are all so sweet and kind! The owner even drove us to the snow monkey park and picked us up when we were done too! They even have their own private outdoor onsen which can be reserved for 50 minute periods. It was amazing!!! Highly recommended without a second thought!!!


The performance and kindness of the staff was outstanding. We travelled around the world, we stayed in 5 Star class hotels, but we have never experienced that kind of service quality before.
