    Lovely little Ryokan and has a beautiful character to it. The couple running it spoke enough English for us to understand everything and we're super friendly. I thought it was great value and would happily stay again.

    A wonderful place to stay and experience traditional Japanese accommodation and hospitality. The couple that run this ryokan are very friendly and go out of their way to assist, even with a little English. Room was 8-mat tatami, staircases typically steep (take care!) with bath/spa clean and well kept. Located in nice area near shops, about 20 mins walk or short bus ride from JR station. Would certainly stay here again.

    Lovely owners and an amazing place. My only feedback would b that they need to advise during booking that breakfast needs to be booked the day before. On our booking it showed that breakfast was included but no further information. On the first morning we were there we asked what time was breakfast but we're told that we hadn't booked so there wasn't any. We had to leave early the second morning and as brekky was from 7.30 we again couldn't take advantage.

    The place is very nice, clean, and quiet. We made a mistake and booked a single room instead of a double room. So, when we got there, this required the owners to adjust everything in the room for two instead of one person. From that moment we felt the atmosphere became relatively "uneasy", but the owners were still very polite and considerate to us. The room is good, comfortable, location is very convenient (a 20 minute, very pleasant walk from Nagano station) and close to the main temple.

    Lovely place, only a few minutes walk from Zenko-ji. Very atmospheric in the tatami room, and the heating worked well (which is good news in Nagano in the winter!) The owners don't speak much English, but they seem like really nice people, and nothing was too much trouble. The only downside is that the staircase is really very steep - getting the suitcases up and down was a little treacherous. But aside from that, thumbs up all round!
