Warm welcome with friendly staff and well prepared breakfast, also the daily service to bring me to the Snow Monkey Park was great.

Excellent stay in a very cool little town. Was easy to get to the snow monkey area and we enjoyed visiting all the onsens around town. Hostel was very nice and gave a traditional feel while having modern amenities.


Senshinkan Matsuya is run by a husband and wife team who are very friendly and accommodating, especially the wife. She is a very pleasant person with a kind nature. It's a great place to stay and is ideally located in Shibu Onsen.

Excellent value for a good quality ryokan. Access to all the local public baths and the hotel bath is also great. Owner will pick up and drop you from station which is very convenient. Monkey Park is a beautiful 30 minute walk away.


This was the last part of our journey and we were able to relax here for a few days. The accommodation we great and the staff very friendly and helpful. The area seemed a bit quiet but we still had a choice of places to eat and really enjoyed the monkey park. It was stress free and relaxing.
