We had a lovely overnight stay at the Andaikan ryokan. The staff are extremely helpful and kind, they go above and beyond to make your trip enjoyable. They kindly offered to drop us off at the monkey park information centre base which is about a 5-10 minute drive from the ryokan itself and from there you walk 25 mins up and through the path in the woods to the main site, so the location of the ryokan is very good. The hosts also recommended a few places to check out on the walk back, including a sake museum / distillery. The walk back is pleasant and downhill, so a good opportunity to explore the little onsen (hot springs) town and local shrines in your own time. Andaikan is easy to get to, we got a bus from the main station - it took less than 10 minutes. The hosts also lent us yukata to wear throughout our stay and arranged for us to have private use of their indoor onsen for 45mins. They did the same for others parties staying there and it was well worth it - super relaxing after our walk back! For dinner we walked up the road to a small place nearby and there are several others so getting dinner won't be a problem, just be mindful that some places shut relatively early (e.g. 10pm). We also had a traditional Japanese ryokan style breakfast at Andaikan during our stay which was really nice and culturally unique, well worth trying it! As for our room, it was spacious and had a private toilet, but the showers were located nearby our room and shared with others. The decor is very Japanese (obviously) and quaint, it's simple but tidy and I have no complaints. If you prefer modern style hotels or are very picky this might not be for you, but if you are in Japan to experience the local culture and people then I highly recommend this place and the wonderful hosts! They also gave us a lift to the train station when we left and there were a couple of other nice touches - which I think are best kept secret to those who visit.
The service was beautifully done
I like the historic setting of the place. The service was excellent, friendly. The food was delicious. I like having our own onsen. free transportation to the monkey park and train station. Buses were convient.
Staff is very kind and helpful.
most restaurant close during my trip. no minimart.
Extremely genuine and caring hosts who provided a warm welcoming, stay and farewell. We were a family of five and had plenty of space and Onsen was great.
With a stay at Andaikan in Yamanouchi, you'll be a 3-minute drive from Shiga Kogen Ski Area and 6 minutes from Jigokudani Monkey Park. The front desk is staffed during limited hours.
