The personal, friendly and courtesy service. The breakfast (not included in the price) was exceptional, probably the best ever in 40+ years of travel. For anyone wanting a traditional Japanese experience this accomodation has it all. I was even given a courtesy lift to the monkey Park and train station. The location Is close to everything
The ryokan is beautiful, with traditional rooms and a lovely garden that was covered in snow during our stay in January. But the highlight was the owners who went out of their way to help us, giving us a lift to different places, leaving yummy snacks in our room, or providing extra bedding for the kids. We also didn't expect the location to be so convenient - we could easily walk to the train and bus station, and from there take buses to the snow monkeys or skiing resorts (though like I said, we still got a lift from the helpful owners whenever they saw us leaving).
Super kind owners! The place is beautiful, clean and confortable. I definitely recommend it.
The staff were incredibly helpful and quick to reply to all our emails straight away. Their communication was excellent despite not being fluent in English. They drove us to and from the station at no cost, and we couldn't have asked them to do more. An excellent, fairly authentic, Japanese experience.
Lovely couple spoke little English. Got picked up from the station and showed to our room. Very traditional and has a lovely view. Pillows were made of rice/wheat but were okay to sleep on. Futons were hard so didn’t sleep as well as on a hotel bed but this was expected and still enjoyed the experience. We enjoyed a bath in the onsen but yes the room could do with a good scrub! We opted for the breakfast in the morning which was a great experience, enough variety to try and eat different things. The couple were very accommodating and the next day drove us to the snow monkey park and we were able to request a pick up time, in which we were picked up with the bags and dropped at the station which was great.
With a stay at Maruka Ryokan, you'll be centrally located in Yamanouchi, a 4-minute drive from Shiga Kogen Ski Area and 12 minutes from Jigokudani Monkey Park. A train station pick-up service is provided at no charge, and free self parking is available onsite.
